Shownotes

Young children typically experience some degree of fear–of separation, the dark, strangers, loud noises and new experiences. But how do we know when it’s something more and prevent these fears from interfering with our children’s daily lives? In this podcast episode, we chat with two child and adolescent psychiatrists, Dr. Natalie Pon and Dr. Glen Elliott, to discuss the various ways anxiety presents in young children, what is typical vs. troubling, and the role of play in managing fear. Parents and caregivers of children under 6 will find our conversation especially relevant. Listen now!
