The anxious child
What To Do When You're Scared & Worried: A Guide for Kids
by James J. Crist
Every child has fears and worries. Some worries are fleeting, but others persist. If these anxious feelings interfere will day-to-day activities, it's time to get help. In this kid-friendly book, James J. Crist explains where fears and worries come from and how they affect the body. He reassures children that they are not alone and suggests various coping skills that they can use to calm themselves.
Sometimes, when fears turn into phobias, panic attacks, or obsessive-compulsive behaviours, counselling is required. Crist clearly explains how counselling works and answers common questions that children may have about it. He ends with a note to parents and a list of resources for further help.
A good book for children who need sympathy and support.
