In this episode, Tracey Biebel Johnson offers expert tips and advice to parents on how to approach and work through the worries their children may be experiencing. Tracey is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and has over 16 years of experience working as a Child Specialist. She discusses the benefits of validating children’s anxieties and tells us how to break down their feelings step by step as part of a process to work through the issue.
