Kids Worry About Money
February 3, 2011 · Posted in Parenting · Permalink

When kids worries make the front section of the New York Times, we better take note. When Daddy Loses His Job DO We Have to Move?, is both sad and hopeful. It is a very informative peek into how kids metabolize worry, specifically about the impact of job loss and financial anxiety. It is a potent reminder that very young children are keenly aware of what is going on in the world around them, even when their parents actively trying to do their best to shield them from worry.

The wonderful teachers and guidance counselors highlighted in the article are very well aware that anxiety in kids often translates to acting out behaviors in school and at home. The combination of group counseling, directly addressing children’s worries and clear behavioral plans for the kids are making a real impact. So whether or not you have this issue in your family the take away is that all kids have “eagle ears,” hear and now when worries or conflict are present. They need these worries acknowledged and lots of comfort.
