Help children identify anxiety in the body with this printable anxiety resource. Use this print-out on Chester the Cat to help communicate with a child who is experiencing physical anxiety symptoms. Children can learn about where Chester feels anxiety and identify if they’ve felt the same.
Children often do not recognize their anxiety for what it is, so education is key. Kids may think there is something wrong with them or misinterpret their physical symptoms as health issues. Use this resource to help teach a child about anxiety and how to recognize physical anxiety. This print-out page pairs well with our other resource, “How Do I Feel Anxiety in My Body.”
Using this resource, children can learn that an upset stomach and other physical anxiety symptoms are normal, and though uncomfortable, will not harm them. Assure children that anxiety is normal and they are safe.
