 • What is happening in my child’s brain when they are feeling/experiencing worry. 
 • Common things we as parents may attempt to do to help that may not actually be that helpful. 
 • Does empathy work as a tool to ease anxiety?
 • What is resilience and how can I help my child be more resilient. 
 • When to seek professional help.
