My Kids are Struggling with Stress, How Can I Help?
Updated: Jan 23, 2022
We’ve been diving deep with lots of parents the last couple of weeks into the history of their kiddos. We ask questions about pregnancy, labor, delivery, immunity, development, milestones, and everything leading up to the kiddo we have now.
Chiropractors have the letters “DC” behind their names and we like to think it stands for doctor of ✨ c a u s e ✨ because we are obsessed with peeling off the bandaids and figuring out WHY our kids are struggling + more stressed than ever before.
In almost every history, we are hearing of children with extreme anxiety, fear of being with friends and peers, depression, obsessive compulsive tendencies, sensory challenges, and complete lack of emotional regulation. Kids that are shutting down from their parents, from their teachers, from the world around them, and from themselves. 😔
The goals their parents want for them? Usually somewhere right in this ballpark: CALM CONNECTED + CONFIDENT
We’re sad that so many kids are struggling but we’re ready to take massive action to help them THRIVE and find out why they’re struggling in the first place. One thing we know for sure: we can’t wait to watch the light come back in their eyes and for their happiness to be restored 🤗
If your child is struggling and you don’t know where else to turn, we just want you to know we’re here for you. You’re not in this alone, there are answers + hope waiting. We’d love to help! 💛
