Recognizing Childhood Anxiety | Kansas City MomCast Sponsored Episode

This episode is sponsored by Children’s Mercy.

What does anxiety look like in kids, and how it differs from other disorders? What are just normal nervous behaviors and what deserves more attention? We talked with Dr. Haley Killian, pediatric psychologist at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, about how to talk to your kids about their worries and when to seek extra mental health support.
