from LS R-7 Schools

The quarterly events are designed for parents of middle-school children. However with this topic they invited their elementary feeder schools and Lee’s Summit North High School parents.

Dr. Nathan Fite of the Kansas City Center for Anxiety Treatment was the guest speaker. The center specializes in working with people with obsessive-compulsive, anxiety and stress-related disorders with an emphasis on cognitive behavioral therapy. Dr. Fite shared the following with parents.

  • Tips for parents about the early warning signs of anxiety.
  • How to help a child with anxiety.
  • The early warning signs of when anxiety is serious and when a child might need professional assistance.
  • Can anxiety lead to suicide and what do parents need to know?

According to Dr. Fite, anxiety is part of the normal human condition, but significant, ongoing distress or life interruption from anxiety is not. Anxiety disorders are real, treatable illnesses, he added.
