We’ve all felt it at times. Your heart starts to beat fast, your palms get sweaty and you feel restless. It’s called anxiety, and can be brought up by new situations and challenging tasks, especially in children. Some level of anxiety is a normal part of life and growing up – but when does it become a problem? 

Childhood anxiety is very real, and often presents itself differently in children than it does in adults. Today, we’ll explore this topic with Karen Young, a psychologist and author who is passionate about engaging with others on a wide range of topics, including anxiety.
