Faith and Anxiety – new Children’s Ministry resource

Everyday ideas and strategies for adults and children

The Church of Ireland Children’s Ministry Network has published a new resource: Faith and Anxiety – Everyday ideas and strategies for adults and children.

This includes tips for parents of anxious children, and for anxious parents and parents more widely, and a range of faith–filled ideas for dealing with anxiety when faced with new or emotionally demanding times and transitions.  It covers:

– tips to encourage talking;
– tips to encourage listening;
– ways to deal with anxious energy, racing thoughts and big feelings;
– ways to ground yourself when together and when apart; and
– tips for reassurance.

The resource runs to eight pages, with plenty of illustrations, and is available here.  Please feel free to share this with any parents you know for whom you think it may be helpful.
