Supporting your daughter with anxiety

I remember the first time I named that I had anxiety.

I was 3 months postpartum with Eliza and the wired/tired feeling wasn’t going away. I’d wander around the house at night, my baby finally blissfully asleep, but I’d be restless.

(And yes, I’ve gotten support in the 25 years since then, and I’m doing great).

For Eliza though she got to know ‘the anxiety creature’ as she calls it, much earlier: her anxiety symptoms began when she was a preteen, and intensified when she was in college.

I know she’s not alone.

So many mamas in our community write in about supporting their precious girls with anxiety (and how it’s different than weathering the ups and downs of a ‘teen tantrum’ or the emotional intensity of a preteen moment!).

So, I asked my favorite human of all time, my daughter Eliza, to come back on We Thrive TV to talk to me about how you, mama, can support your girl with anxiety (and that includes supporting yourself).

P.S. Forward this video to a mama who’s dancing with anxiety. Because sharing is caring, and everyone could use a stronger bond.
