Helping Your Kids Face Their Uncertainty

Daily insights on life in the face of uncertainty, by psychiatrist and habit change specialist Dr. Jud Brewer

Children don’t always express emotions in the same way that adults do. Fear and anxiety may come out as anger, combativeness, or withdrawal.

Share your emotions with your children. If you’re feeling anxious, first check in with yourself and name the emotions at play so you can see them clearly.
