How to Keep Anxious Children Calm
It is very important that adults speak to children with high levels of anxiety in a calm voice. Even though parents and teachers might be stressed, talking too fast or acting nervous can cause the students with high anxiety to feel even more overwhelmed and uncomfortable. Adults must remember to speak calmly and not too fast. This will help the students to learn the information better, to feel more relaxed about asking questions, and to do their best on tests. When counseling students that are very anxious, keep yourself calm and model desired behavior.
