Not only does it have great parenting advice in general, there are plenty of boards created by both professionals and parents with information, advice, and activities for parents of children with anxiety. Whether you are looking to find out more about what anxiety is, how to help your child with anxiety, or how to provide them with tools they can use to help themselves cope, Pinterest has it all. Since Pinterest is a creative outlet, often these boards are fun, creative, and exciting! There is tons of anxiety information out there on the internet, so having a few Pinterest boards you can add directly to your feed and see every time you scroll is incredibly helpful!
