Suitable for readers aged eight and over, this book details:
the reasons for anxiety symptoms
how the body protects us in times of real danger and
helps children figure out what thought processes are causing these over-the-top reactions.
By assigning a 'monster' (such as the 'Bad Stuff Always Happens To Me Monster') to negative thoughts, a child can put the message as an influence outside their head and thereby learn to ignore it.
The funny thing about this book is that adults will flick through it and exclaim out loud, 'Oh, this one talks to me!' There are ways of thinking which are inherited, as personality, and therefore run in families. In this way, the book can stimulate conversations between parents and their children.
12 Annoying Monsters: Self-talk for kids with anxiety is highly recommended by counsellors, psychologists and parents.
