Help your child worry less
Seven Steps to Help Your Child Worry Less
by Sam Goldstein, Kristy Hagar and Robert Brooks
This is a good book that can help both parents and children who suffer from worry, fear, and anxiety. It explains the causes of fear and anxiety and how to recognize if your child is overly worried. It then provides practical advice on how to reduce anxiety and foster resilience. The authors encourage parents and children to work together to develop a worry-less plan, and offer solutions to any obstacles that may arise. They also do a good job in reminding parents to always treat their children with support and empathy instead of criticism. By being sympathetic, you can go a long way towards easing your child's worries.
