Raising Worry-Free Girls - II

Family Talk

Christian talk radio with Dr. James Dobson

July 8, 2022

The average age of onset anxiety for girls used to be eight. Today, with the added stress of social media and the pandemic, coupled with an increased emphasis on academic and athletic performance, the average age in which therapists are diagnosing anxiety in little girls is six. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. Tim Clinton and his guest, Sissy Goff, author of Raising Worry-Free Girls, discuss how girls can experience intrusive thoughts and get stuck, like a single-loop roller coaster. Sissy notes that a father’s affirmation of his daughter can provide relief and create connection. In addition, meditating on whatever is true, noble, and lovely, as Philippians 4: 8 instructs us to do, is another way to combat the worry monster.
