Helping a child experiencing a panic attack

When I was in first grade, I rode a bicycle with friends. Suddenly the wheel of my bike hit a stone. I flew over the steering wheel and fell, hitting my chin. In fact, I was not hurt. However, when I saw that I was bleeding, I started screaming. I did not scream from pain – I was scared.

When my parents came to the rescue, I started a real panic. I saw fear on my dad’s face, which was running towards me. Then we went to the hospital.

I will never forget this trip. I sat on my mother’s lap, and dad drove the car. Mom consoled me with all her might, but I could no longer perceive them. I was overwhelmed with panic, and in the end I cried out: “I hate my bike, I hate hospitals, I hate driving a car, I hate you!” Yeah, it was a fun trip for my parents.

How to deal with a child’s anxiety after the holidays

Many parents and even some children are happy to accept the start of a new school year. If a child can easily get up at 6 a.m., if he likes to learn lessons, he is probably looking forward to the start of a new school year. He is waiting for a meeting with classmates and lessons in which he can learn something new.

However, not all children like to go to school. For those children who do not like to learn and get up early, the beginning of the school year causes severe stress and negative emotions – anxiety, frustration and fear.

To cope with such negative emotions, you must first find out what exactly caused them. Unfortunately, people do not understand the true reasons for their feelings. If the child does not like going to school, he says: “They don’t teach me anything there,” “Teacher doesn’t love me,” etc. With the help of such phrases he protects himself from negative feelings about what can happen at school.
