We can take criticism and certainly weve gotten our share of it but hearing people look at a middle chapter of a story and make claims about the story as a whole . its not in any way a response to

meganmccluskey@timeinccomAbout 40 million American adults have an anxiety disorder each year Rates are rising among young people and the use of anti-anxiety drugs is soaring What can be done to reverse this mental health crisis Part of the answer soon may be to start putting more at-risk preschoolersand their parentsin therapy A growing body of research is suggesting that treating kids who are at risk for anxiety disorders and depressionand their familiesearly may help keep mental illnesses at bay And the move with the biggest impact (both in dollars saved and misery averted) will likely be to focus on anxiety Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health issues and are among the earliest to arise; they can set in as early as age three They are also increasingly being thought of as gateway illnesses Depression substance abuse and even suicidal behavior often begin as out-of-control anxiety Theres a good chance that my eight-year-old daughter will struggle with anxiety Having a first-degree relativea parent or sibling for examplewith an anxiety disorder bumps a persons risk of developing one up to five times that of the general population When I was a twenty-year-old college junior I was diagnosed with panic disorder an illness characterized by repeated episodes of a racing heart shortness of breath and blinding terror In a period before my diagnosis I had been nearly paralyzed by fear: I skipped my finals dropped classes and spent more than a month shaking on my parents sofa Ive grappled with anxiety ever since My father deals with depression; my aunt bipolar disorder My grandmother heard voices and plagued by paranoia once tried to burn down her own home with her husband and children inside She spent three years in a psychiatric facility TIME Health Newsletter Get the latest health and science news plus: burning questions and expert tips View Sample Sign Up Now Id certainly like to spare my own daughter the pain of mental illness And now researchers are developing programs with the aim of preventing anxiety disorders At-risk children are usually taught social skills and how to approach the situations (asking another kid to play doing show-and-tell) they already fear This "exposure" is the main component of cognitive behavioral therapy the most evidence-based non-drug treatment for anxiety disorders The research is still in its early stages and it could be years before the programs are widely available to families but some results are encouraging Researchers at the University of Connecticut and Johns Hopkins University tested an eight-week therapy for healthy kids who each had at least one parent with an anxiety disorder During the following year 31% of kids who didnt receive the therapy developed an anxiety disorder whereas only 5% of kids who received treatment developed one Researchers are also developing programs for preschool children who because of their shy socially reticent temperaments are at greater risk of developing anxiety About one third to one half of these "behaviorally-inhibited" children will go on to have anxiety disordersmost often social anxiety disorderby adolescence In the prevention programs parents are often treated too Parents of anxious kids often become controlling and overprotective in an attempt to ease their childrens distress The trouble is this sends the message that the world is a dangerous place and that kids cant cope on their own Also when parents allow their children to avoid scary or distressing situations the kids have fewer opportunities to learn to master their fear So parents are taught to refrain from rescuing their anxious children and to push them to confront scary situations MORE: Don’t Tell Anxious Kids That Everything Will Be OK I recently spent a spring Saturday morning at the University of Maryland sitting in on the final session of a program for behaviorally inhibited children Six preschoolers sat in a circle legs crisscrossed on colorful foam mats It was the final meeting of the "Turtle Program" and a shiny gold sign exclaiming Congrats Grad hung on the wall "Can anyone remind us about some of the new things weve learned in circle time" asked Danielle Novick one of the programs leaders Marie a little girl with curly brown hair and silver sneakers shyly raised her hand "Being brave" she says "Good job" replied Novick "Thank you" She leaned over and put a sticker on Maries knee a reward for speaking up I watched this exchange from an adjacent room via a one-way mirror The program is actually a study being conducted by researchers on the efficacy of an eight-week treatment to prevent anxiety disorders in behaviorally inhibited kids The children in this group had all scored in the top 15% on a scale of behavioral inhibition Many already had difficulties making friends going to birthday parties and speaking up in preschool In the group the children practiced introducing themselves asking another kid to play and asking and answering questions They learned to express their emotions and to negotiate conflictfirst using puppets which can be less stressful The children also learned deep breathing or what the program calls "balloon breathing" to help cope with anxiety Ken Rubin one of the lead investigators of the study says that even as early as age four behaviorally inhibited kids often have poor social skills are being rejected by their peers and are internalizing negative feelings about themselves "Were trying to interrupt that whole process" said Andrea Chronis-Tuscano the other principal investigator MORE: Inside The Mindful Classroom While the children were in circle time their parents were in a room across the hall where they were taught to ignore anxious and avoidant behavior and to praise brave behavior Parents are also coached on how to create a fear hierarchy for their children consisting of incremental steps culminating in an ultimate goal For example if the ultimate goal is to ask another child to play a first step might be to say hello to another child The idea is for each step to be achievable so that children have success and can gain confidence The parents are coached on how to set up bravery practice (which is basically exposure therapy) They help their children to practice things like talking to a teacher or doing show-and-tell during the group Therapists coach parents in the moment via earpieces secret service style The researchers take pains to emphasize that they are not trying to change these kids personalitiesto turn shy and introverted children into extroverts "Impairment is really the key" says Chronis-Tuscano "We know how important social relationships are to peoples happiness and success in life and we dont want their inhibition to hold them back from doing anything" In an earlier small pilot study the Turtle Program reduced anxiety symptoms in behaviorally inhibited kids Before the treatment nearly three-quarters of the kids met criteria for social anxiety disorder Afterward less than a third did As a preschooler my daughter was spirited and joyful obsessed with Mary Poppins and her hot-pink scooter She was also reserved and cautious She hovered along the perimeter of birthday parties and music classes But in the last couple of years shes become markedly more confident Still if theres anything that worries me its her outsize fear of many kids movies Shes not only petrified of movie monsters and villains but also hates it when anyone in a movie is nasty or mean We got through only a few minutes of The Wizard of Oz She made me turn it off at the appearance of Miss Gulch the nasty woman who snatches Toto and later transforms into the Wicked Witch I worry that these fears are an omen of greater anxiety to come Researchers have found that phobias raise the risk of developing other anxiety disorders and depression I myself had a childhood phobia of clowns So Ive tried some of the prevention strategies On the advice of child psychologist Ronald Rapee a pioneer in the prevention of anxiety disorders in preschoolers I took my daughter to see the movie Paddington the movie about the talking bear that loves marmalade (A free online version of Dr Rapees "Cool Little Kids" program is available at coollittlekidsorgau) But by the first scenes when an earthquake levels the wayward bears home in Peru and kills his uncle my daughter had scrambled onto my lap When the evil taxidermist played by Nicole Kidman captured Paddington and threw him into a black van my daughter began sobbing We can go" I said and moved to get up "No" she wailed So we stayed But when the lights finally came up at the end another mother shot me a judgmental look and proclaimed loudly "That poor kid was so scared" I felt awful and embarrassed like I was a terrible parent I told my daughter how proud I was of her At the time I wasnt sure what if anything I accomplished As with everything else in parenting Im winging it But just a few weeks ago my daughter husband and I watched the original Ghostbusters from 1984 And when the demons attacked I was the only one who had to close my eyes

endless House investigations stymied policy efforts and fresh questions about the resilience of his unorthodox political coalition But as midterm election results rolled in he celebrated GOP success in the Senate and distanced himself from any blame Trump stayed quiet for much of election night as Republicans maintained their hold on the Senate and Democrats were on track to claim the House — a shift all but certain to redefine his presidency Late in the evening he offered a brief tweet that simply read: "Tremendous success tonight Thank you to all" File image of US president Donald Trump AP Trump called House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi a conversation that her office said included congratulations and a nod to her pitch for bipartisanship Widely viewed as a referendum on Trump’s presidency Tuesday’s results offered a split decision that revealed deep tensions in the American electorate — distances that could easily widen during two years of divided control Trump’s aggressive campaign blitz which paid off in some key victories suggests he is likely to continue leaning into the fray Control of the House would give Democrats the ability to launch investigations into the president and stifle his agenda But White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders minimised the magnitude of likely Democratic gains "Maybe you get a ripple but I certainly don’t think that there’s a blue wave" she told reporters pointing to several early Republican wins As for Republicans retaining control of the Senate she called it "a huge moment and victory for the president" White House aides called on Democrats to work with Republicans in the next Congress Said White House counselor Kellyanne Conway "I don’t know that there will be much of an appetite for Democrat lawmakers to spend all of their time or most of their time or even a fraction of their time investigating instigating trying to impeach and subpoena people" In addition to the call to Pelosi Trump called Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer as well as a number of candidates he backed during the race the White House said Trump had aggressively campaigned in the closing days of the race his focus on boosting Republicans in states that he carried in 2016 Of the three races he targeted in the final day Trump’s picks all won Tuesday night with Republican Mike Braun defeating Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly in Indiana Republican Josh Hawley defeating Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill in Missouri and Republican Attorney General Mike DeWine defeating Democrat Richard Cordray in the race for Ohio governor The White House has been stressing the historical headwinds it faced: in the last three decades 2002 was the only midterm election when the party holding the White House gained Senate seats And only twice in the past eight decades has the president’s party picked up House seats in the midterms Trump spent election night watching returns with family and friends at the White House his shadow looming large over the results Nearly 40 percent of voters cast their ballots to express opposition to the president according to AP VoteCast a national survey of the electorate while about 25 percent said they voted to express support for Trump Faced with the possibility of keeping the Senate but losing the House aides in recent days had laid out the political reality to Trump who could face an onslaught of Democratic-run investigations In turn Trump began trying out defensive arguments ahead of Election Day noting that midterm losses are typical for the party in the White House pointing out a high number of GOP retirements and stressing that he had kept his focus on the Senate Aides set up televisions in the White House residence for Trump first lady Melania Trump and their guests to watch election results come in with the sets tuned to different cable news channels Among those expected were Trump’s adult children White House aides Republican officials and presidential friends The election served as a referendum of sorts on Trump’s racially charged appeals and the strength of the coalition that powered him to the White House — a group he will need again in just two years Overall more voters disapproved of Trump’s job performance than approved — a finding that is largely consistent with recent polling Voters scored Trump positively on the economy and for standing up "for what he believes in" But the president received negative marks from voters on temperament and trustworthiness Still about one-third of voters said Trump was not a factor in their votes Trump’s scorched-earth campaigning came to define the 2018 campaign In the final days he sought to motivate supporters with the battle over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh Ahead of the election both parties claimed that the emotionally charged debate over Kavanaugh’s confirmation would motivate their supporters to turn out Returning to his immigration-heavy 2016 playbook Trump went on to unleash his full fury on a caravan of migrants slowly making their way to the southern border His take-no-prisoners approach troubled many Republicans seeking to appeal to moderate voters in suburban House districts but Trump prioritized base voters in the deep-red states that could determine the fate of the Senate Moving forward, In the course, Landowners burn forests in the country at this time of the year to make room for new palm-oil plantations. set a goal of reducing
