Even if nothing you say reassures your child, there's still something you can do.

When a child's fears get out of hand, it can feel exhausting—for both parents and child. Fortunately, it's not your job to reassure a child until they feel better. Some simple solutions can help your child feel capable, too.

Carol and Anne share insights to break the fight-or-flight response and empower your child to get back to feeling safe again.
