Guest: Dr. Cindy Hovington, Ph.D.


Relating to your child’s fear or shyness can be disheartening and challenging. I vividly remember the time when my 3-year-old daughter was hesitant to join a community center due to fear. This episode shares the journey we embarked on to help her face her fears and build resilience. 

We break down strategies such as acknowledging the fear instead of dismissing it, breaking tasks into smaller manageable steps, and empowering children to explore their feelings. We touch on the valuable teachings from ‘Emotional Agility’ by Dr. Susan David that can help children gain emotional agility and learn to respond effectively to their fears.
