Exposure Based Anxiety Treatment

Question:

I am worried that encouraging my child to do things that she fears will only make her more scared. I remember when I was young, my parents forced me to do things that scared me and it only made me feel more scared.


Light On Anxiety Answer:

It is not encouraging children/or adults to approach feared stimuli that is the problem.  What is critical is the manner in which we do it. If done with compassion and understanding, while acknowledging just how brave one is being for this act, it can only help.
