Are The Kids Still Alright?
We’re seeing increased anxiety and depression in kids these days in the wake of so many events that are simply out of our control. The long tail of the pandemic, climate change, the war in Ukraine, just to name a few, are causing children and parents alike to despair.
So what can we do in the face of wave after wave of seemingly overwhelming crises. In this episode we continue our conversation with Dr. Barbara Nusbaum, a psychologist who specializes in working with children and young adults. Together we offer strategies for combating helplessness and despair.
You’ll discover ways to create (or re-create) community so you and your kids don’t feel so isolated and alone. We’ll discuss how to talk to your children about things that are outside of our sphere of influence: Keep it simple, honest and at their developmental level.
Finally, if you find the events and stressors that we're all going through are too painful to bear and thoughts of self harm emerge, we urge you to contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
