I am a concerned father of 14 year old boy. He has always had problems with communication, and now the doctor tells me that he is struggling with anxiety. I wish to know the effective ways for dealing with the problem. Any help is welcome!

Teens are susceptible to nervousness, stress, and tension. Some form of physical activity may help. Relaxation techniques like yoga, deep breathing may help – all of which have a physical effect on the mind. Make sure you get sufficient nourishment, exercise, and sleep. Eat vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, and whole grains to give your body ample energy. Patients should spend time with family and friends. Just hang out or go for organized activities. Invite friends along and enjoy connecting with them as well. Proper help from a counselor/therapist would help.
