How to Hide Anxiety from the Kids

It is not easy for mothers to hide their anxiety from their children. In fact, there are plenty of mothers out there who never truly manage it. Anxiety is one of the hardest things to deal with in general, but when you are in charge of small children all of their emotions and keeping them alive, anxiety can feel more suffocated – more so than usual. 

Anxiety is heritable, but just like many other issues there are things that can impact an elevator. Your genetics and your environment or two of those mean things. You can’t remove your anxiety problem DNA from your children, but you can insure that you hide your own anxiety as much as possible. Talk about it, make it known, but also make sure that you aren’t showing them when you are panicking because they will fit on that. Below, we’ve got some suggestions on how you can hide your anxiety from the children.

  • Seek help. You can hide your anxiety by medicating and hiding the medication, or you can go to see a cannabis therapist and get a prescription for cannabis to help you to unwind and relax in the evening. When you do this one, make sure that you learn how to get rid of weed smell because the children will certainly notice that you are smoking and therein lies the time for them to ask questions. Anxiety is not the easiest thing to deal with, but you need to also be able to seek help for it. If you don’t seek help you’re only going to make things worse for yourself and that’s going to make things worse for your family
  • Try not to project. It’s really difficult to do this, because when you’re panicking the easiest thing to do is panic around other people and they will feed off of that. So many parents must miss the mark on this and unintentionally make their children feel anxious. If you are dealing with an anxious situation, do your best to swallow it down and take a deep breath. If you’re scared for your children, take a deep breath and don’t verbalize that fear. If you think your child could fall down, and you want to save them from that while they are already perfectly safe, they will then fear falling down.
  • Use positive language. The way that you speak can impact the way you think and you can help your children as well as yourself by reframing your emotions and thoughts in a less anxious way. You’ll be doing amateur CBT therapy when you do this.
  • Find some distractions. To be able to hide your own anxiety from the children it’s much easier to find some distractions for yourself. Keeping yourself and your mind busy is a good way to ensure that you don’t show your anxiety in person and that could help you to overcome it. Anxiety doesn’t have to chase you for the rest of your life, and it also doesn’t have to impact your time with your kids.
