July 14th, 2015

Episode 90 of 184 episodes

All parents know it doesn't take long for your baby's personality to shine through. As days turn into weeks you just know if your baby likes interacting with others or needs quiet time alone to recharge.. you realise they're good at thinking through problems or making new friends, they're keen to draw or prefer to build, they like the outdoors or the dreaded screens! But just as we watch our children grow their strengths it can be concerning for many parents to watch some other traits creep into their children's behaviour. In this podcast we're going to talk about anxiety and how it can sometimes be a problem for children. Dr Luke Martin from Beyond Blue is going to explain what anxiety is and how you can help your child overcome it.
