and how it “tricks” your child...
Your child isn’t strange, sick, or weird. Their anxiety isn’t a disease, it’s more of what I call a “mental misunderstanding”.
We all have a self-preservation mechanism built into us
called the “fight or flight” response. It’s been there for thousands

marathon. Maybe your legs were shaking from so much adrenaline that you

Your fight or flight reaction was a great thing to have
that day, right? It did a fantastic job protecting you, just like it’s
