fbpx How Can I Best Support My Child Who Struggles With Social Anxiety?
Authored by Dr. Michelle Murray on October 19, 2021
Dear Dr. Michelle:

My eight-year-old child has had a rocky start to the school year. She struggles with social anxiety and it seems to be getting worse. She just lacks confidence, is concerned that others will make fun of her, and I can tell she dreads going into school in the morning.

Sincerely,

Mac
