With the right information, parents can help children to overcome their anxiety, guiding any child to lessen their worrying and reduce their avoidance of challenging tasks.

Childhood anxiety is much more prevalent these days, and parents and carers need to be able to help their kids to prevent dangerous escalation. With 18 years of expert, qualified experience, the author shows how to help children and tweens build up the necessary brain architecture and perspective, and create the emotional reserves and balance needed throughout life.

Parent-led strategies for managing child anxiety based in cognitive behavioral approaches are vital for the successful treatment of mild to moderate levels of child anxiety. Parents, carers and grandparents are on the spot when a child is behaving anxiously and simple interventions by them can be used across time as an effective treatment for child anxiety.

User-friendly features in this book include:

  • Case studies of a family who have successfully tackled their children’s anxious behavior.
  • Worksheets outlining the methodical steps parents should take.
  • Advice on how to manage a child’s digital world.
  • Tips to help worried parents deal with their own anxious thoughts and feelings.
You’re the one who’s in your child’s life for the long run — it’s important that you know what to do when anxious moments arise.
