My strong-willed son has taught me so much about dealing with anxiety. Parenting him helped me learn how much of the behavior kiddos struggle with is motivated by the scary signals they’re getting from their bodies. Knowing him as an adult has helped me recognize my own anxious tendencies, and how to manage them with loving curiosity. This time I’m sharing some of the things I’ve learned, with a big assist from our beloved Judy Blume. 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  1. How anxiety can motivate strong-willed behaviors, like fighting with siblings or challenging authority.
  2. The messages anxiety sends about the state of your mind and body (and how to start paying attention).
  3. Why the hardest anxiety to recognize might be your own.

And much more!
