Student Support Spotlight, by Alissa Plaisance – September 5
Ever feel anxious? Me, too. I keep Philippians 4:6-7 close to my heart, especially on challenging days. Many of our children experience times where they worry or are anxious. These times can be short-lived like when they are preparing to take a test or can be seen in some children for longer periods of time, such as if a child gets overwhelmed in social situations. Here is a great list of age-specific books that can help ease fears or worries. Reading them with your child also makes for a great bonding time. The Student Support Center has several great resources if you are interested in learning more strategies to help with anxiety or worry.
