How to deal with the nervous child of school age and the nervous teenager

Dealing with a nervous child of school age:

To deal with a nervous child of school age, you can also use the child's imagination, such as inviting your child to think about birds, reptiles, etc. for half a minute.
Then he stopped him to think about something else for another half minute, except for what he had been thinking about in the first half minute.

Then ask him to classify a group of cards according to color, number, or any other option, and ask him after each task if he is still thinking about his first choice (eg birds).
This method occupies the child's mind away from what was making him angry.

Dealing with a nervous teenager:

A teenager may feel stressed and angry for many reasons related to friends, academic achievement, social life, and others.

Dealing with adolescent nervousness is through training and teaching him to deal with his anger in a correct way, such as encouraging him to do the following things when he feels angry:

  • Listen to your favorite music.
  • practicing yoga.
  • Talk to friends.
  • Describe his feelings by talking to you.
  • Write in his diary about what exactly bothers him.
