    Anxiety at early age turn into a major problem as we grow so parents should have to help their kids to get rid of this anxiety.

    My 10 year old daughter first showed signs of anxiety at 3 months. She was at her worst by 4 years old but with lots of support and help she is doing much better although is still learning coping skills as she grows. I have found that positive affirmations had had a powerful impact on her ability to cope. We sat down and created something that suited her and kept it simple. She recites it to herself every night at bedtime and other times during the day when she is feeling anxious. It takes discipline to recite it every night but becomes natural after time. I highly recommend this to anyone who suffers anxiety regardless of age.
