If you have a child who suffers from anxiety issues, then you’re probably overwhelmed with advice and ideas from total strangers; however, sometimes the best solution is the simplest one. While anxiety issues can be addressed by a professional therapist or counselor, one thing that many people discover is that having a comfort item they can fiddle with helps them handle the stress and relieve anxiety in a variety of situations.
Some of the best toys for anxiety are small items that can easily be carried in one hand or put into a pocket. These items are not so big that they draw attention to the user, but they are also practical enough that the user is able to keep their fingers busy doing something that allows them to redirect their anxiety. This can be simple fidget toys or items that provide a tactile experience, such as moldable putty or a squish ball.
