Your Parents' Anxiety: How to Lessen Their Impact On Your Kids

Your Parents' Anxiety: How to Lessen Their Impact On Your Kids

Patterns of anxiety are often passed down in families. If you are actively working to shift the culture in your family to manage anxiety, where do your parents fit in? While your parents can be supportive and helpful, some like those of this listener do not believe in “this therapy nonsense”. Anxiety expert Lynn Lyons address both the positive and negative ways grandparents get involved and how to talk to them (or when to keep them out if it). Fear of flying? Don’t go on the big family trip this summer without listening to this episode.
