In Episode 15 of the Life Skills 4 Kids Podcast, I will be talking about a concept that I have been trying to incorporate into my family, mummy, and occupational therapist life since I came across it a couple of months ago called parenting with open hands and how it can help with anxiety in kids.


In this episode we cover:

  • The meaning of parenting with open hands.
  • I share my personal experience on my children struggling and feeling overwhelmed.
  • Preparing ourselves, as parents, to help our children through these emotions.
  • Things parents can do to support and guide their children.
  • Listening and taking notice of children’s cues for expressing their emotions.
  • Challenging children and help them through it to prepare them for problem-solving.


    Alex loves school. He enjoys all the activities he does during the term such as swimming and soccer. He also loves holidays and all the fun things he gets to do while he’s not at school. The problem is, Alex doesn’t like changes. His tummy gets all tight and he gets a worry cloud that comes over his brain and makes it feel foggy. When the school term ends and holidays begin or when school is about to start again, Alex feels really worried and anxious.

    When you purchase the Alex Learns that Changes are OK (Flipbook), you will receive a digital flipbook that gradually changes from one page to the next while listening to high-quality audio narration as if someone is flipping and reading the book for you!
