Health Tip: When Your Child Worries

(HealthDay News) -- No one is immune from worry -- even children. So it's important for parents to help them deal with their concerns in healthy ways.

The Nemours Foundation offers these suggestions to help put your child's worries to rest:

  • Take time to talk about what's worrying your child.

  • Listen carefully to what your child has to say, and explain that you understand and are concerned. Offer reassurance about what's bothering your child, and offer comfort.

  • Help your child figure out a solution to the problem, but don't try to remedy the entire situation yourself.

  • Help your child keep things in perspective, and explain that problems are often temporary.

  • Show your child how to react to concerns by being a good role model.
