Worry

It is normal for children, as they grow, to experience worry. Worry can be helpful, as it encourages us to anticipate and plan for possibilities; sustained worry, however, can impact our wellbeing.

There is much we can do to reassure children and support them in managing their worries, and these skills are beneficial throughout life.

Please find below some useful information, resources and links around children's worries.
