Anxiety in young children often goes undiagnosed for years. Fear-Less Triple P classes provides parents with tools to support their children with anxiety.

MOUNT VERNON – Anxiety in children manifests in several forms, including separation anxiety, phobias, social anxiety, general anxiety and panic disorder. Symptoms include poor sleep patterns, stomachaches and interference with school, home or play activities. Young children with anxiety often go undiagnosed for years.

Knox County has recently become a national trailblazer in parenting education as the first U.S. county to offer Triple P Fear-Less, a program aimed at supporting and offering strategies for families with children experiencing anxiety.


The first Triple P Fear-Less 6-week group is scheduled to begin (on Zoom) Thursday, June 24 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
