This two-in-one handbook will help you to understand your child's anxiety and how to ease it, while also showing you how to reconcile your own fears and worries that come with raising an anxious child.
Tips and strategies from evidence-based therapies, such as CBT, ACT and exposure therapy, are paired in this guide with humorous, thoughtful and honest anecdotes of the author's own life and parenting experiences. Challenging modern cultural pressures to be a 'perfect parent' and warning against the trap of over-accommodation, Dr Cassiday gives advice on how to embrace imperfection and uncertainty and to build resilience, compassion and gratitude so that anxiety can take the back seat in your family.
With a focus on acceptance and growth rather than 'curing', this book will help you and your child to thrive and find joy even during the worst bouts of anxiety.
