Have you watched your child/children suffer through high levels of worry & anxiety? You are not alone!

These emotions are real, demanding and can be quite concerning for parents and carers. Experiencing such big emotions is hard for our children too! Knowing how difficult in can be to navigate these emotions with our children, child psychologist Dr John Irvine has written this practical and fun-filled guide of therapeutic ideas and activities for parents and educators to help children manage anxiety and worry.

This book acknowledges the growing problem of anxiety in kids –everywhere, which calls for immediate and timely attention. Dr. John has tackled the issue by presenting sensible advice for parents, educators and other caretakers in his latest booklet. It includes background info on the origin of worry, an assessment guide to help determine the problem, as well as fun-filled activities to deal with the worries that kids encounter in today's society.
