Do you have a child that you have to push to try new things? According to Temple Grandin’s “The Loving Push”, “Kids will try something new if you can link it to their goal”. By refusing to enable your child’s fears, within reason, they will eventually move past their anxiety to get what they want.
Whether it is school, sports, hobbies, community work be consistent in trying to get them to get out of their comfort zone to try new things.
