Air Travel Can Be Scary

What if you are making out of town plans to visit family or friends and one of your kids becomes really upset about the idea of flying in a plane? How can you help your child?

Some children are afraid something terrible could happen to the plane, while others may feel physically sick before they even board the plane. It’s always a good idea to mention this to your child’s pediatrician. Just telling your child that only 1 in eleven million planes actually crash may not be enough to reduce the fear.

Kids who are anxious about flying can benefit from learning powerful thinking strategies to fight off the worry and anxiety that often accompanies flying. As a first line of defense against fear, check out Outsmart Your Worry Tool Kit for KidsĀ®. Children learn to use accurate thinking, clever ways to understand probability, self-talk, and positive imagery, which helps them stay strong. These techniques can help quiet the fear and make that family trip a reality.
