If you ask Americans their #1 concern about our country at this time, the answer is likely to be “the economy.” For our children, our concerns become their concerns. Our fears become their fears. That which stresses us ultimately stresses them.

The National Academy of Pediatrics has produced a sheet entitled “Talking to Children About the Economy: Tips for Parents and Other Caregivers.” Click here to download that handout. The sheet provides some very practical suggestions that may help to lessen unneeded worry and stress on our young people.
