If you are the parent or caregiver of an anxious child, you know what it feels like to be held hostage. So does your child. Children who worry too much are held captive by their fears. They go to great lengths to avoid frightening situations, and ask the same anxiety-based questions over and over again. Yet the answers give them virtually no relief. Parents and caregivers find themselves spending huge amounts of time reassuring, coaxing, accommodating, and doing whatever else they can think of to minimize their childs distress.
But it doesnt work. The anxiety remains in control. As you have undoubtedly discovered, simply telling an anxious child to stop worrying doesnÂt help at all. Nor does applying adult logic, or allowing your child to avoid feared situations, or offering reassurance every time the fears are expressed.
Anxiety has a way of growing, spreading, shifting in form, and generally resisting efforts to talk it out of existence. But there is hope. What to Do When You Worry Too Much will teach you and your child a new and more successful way to think about and manage anxiety. The techniques described in this book will help your child take control.
Did not like the format of the book and my child didn't care for the activities either. Would not recommend for SPD or ASD.Published 2 days ago by K. Wiggins
