In today’s episode of the Gentle Parenting Show, Kim sat down with Dr. Roseann Capanna-Hodge who is the founder of The Global Institute of Children’s Mental Health. Her work has helped thousands of children reverse the most challenging conditions: ADHD, anxiety, mood, Lyme, and PANS/PANDAS using proven holistic therapies. Today’s conversation focuses on the difference between stress and anxiety and how to model behaviors that will help children become more regulated. Kim and Dr. Roseann discuss:
The difference between stress and anxiety The evolution of stress and anxiety Signs of stress and anxiety in children Teaching children to be aware of stress Teaching children to self-regulate
Our favorite quotes from the episode are “you can be a straight-a student and be suicidal, be depressed, have OCD, we can’t use that as a benchmark for mental health” and “the more your kids disconnect from emotions and feelings, the less likely they will be to succeed in school or be a leader. Your kid will be plagued with high levels of stress.”
