Product Description

Review

This is an excellent child friendly book which explains in easy to understand terms how anxiety can affect a child. The illustrations are gentle and fun and make the book the kind that you could read at bedtime. It's also useful to read this book in conjunction with explaining to your child about anxiety and the 'fight/flight' response. The book explains how thinking in a negative and scared way about things only helps the anxiety grow, almost like an out of control plant, being fed and watered and tended to far more than it needs to be. A fun but effective way to explain anxiety to young children. --Alison Harris, Occupational Therapist

5.0 out of 5 stars A really helpful book 15 Dec 2006
By Kari L
Format:Paperback
I ordered this book for my 6 yr old who was battling with huge anxiety related to going to school. The book arrived on a Saturday and we worked through it that afternoon. She absolutely loved reading it and wouldn't stop when I thought she had taken enough for one sitting! It is very interactive and was so helpful in getting her to tell me more of her worries. I think she felt the book was written with only her in mind yet she was also relieved to find that there must be others worrying in a similar way! It gave me really helpful tangible things that I could try with her when previously I had been a bit lost. A month later I cant say all her worries are gone but we are managing it in a far more positive, constructive way I think.

The impact of this book on our son's excessive worrying has been amazing. He is 8 and worries himself into a state several times a day about aliens, monsters, meteors, bacteria, repeating nightmares... He read through the book in two sittings, and what a difference it has made. While still a worry-wart he is far more in control and much readier to accept the rational explanations and coping strategies we suggest. He can keep a lid on things until we get home and is beginning to come up with his own coping systems. Very highly recommended indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book changed my child's life 21 Mar 2006
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Having an 11 year old boy who suffered from anxiety was taking its toll both at home and at school. The school and I had tried and failed to allay his fears with kindness, understanding, time and concern; to no avail. Whilst waiting for an appointment with the local child development clinic, I decided to search for help from a book. This book is written for the child. It uses words that they can identify with and it tackles the problems of irrational fear and anxiety immediately. It works. Quite simply, within a week I had a different child. This book is unique, it is easy to follow and gives the child and the carer a clear path to follow each day. It 'confines' the fears to a set pattern and finally removed the fears entirely. My son has asked me to cancel the appointment with the clinic as he says that he can't remember what it was that he was feeling at the time! I will take him anyway, and I will take the book with me to share its success with them too. Buy it, it works; I have given the school a copy and already there are 5 other 9 to 12 year old boys who are reaping the benefits as I write this review.

5.0 out of 5 stars What to do when you worry too much 20 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback
I have never before written a review but in this case I just had too. This book has been the saving of me. I had a very anxious 10 year old boy and this book was recommended by a physcologist. Oh my God I can't believe the change in the child since we read this book together. Even to apply this book to yourself if you are an anxious person is a great help. I would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone who has dealings with anxious children. I have passed it on to a friend and she too has had great success with it. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good!!! 29 Dec 2009
By Jules
Format:Paperback|Amazon Verified Purchase
An excellent book. I'm a therapist and was trying to adapt some of the approaches I use with adults to help my son cope with his worries and fears. I was having only a bit of success when I discovered this book. The author had done a brilliant job. My son enjoyed the book and looked forward to the times we spent reading it. We had to resist the temptation to rush through the book and had to slow ourselves down to make sure he did each exercise properly and had time to think and practice the ideas. He was soon reminding me when it was his allotted 'worry time' (a time set aside specifically for him to talk about his worries and be reassured) and his younger brother soon started demanding his own 'worry time'. We still ocassionally use some of the ideas from the book but my son's worries about poison, germs and escaped black widow spiders seemed to have all but disappeared.

5.0 out of 5 stars What to do when you worry too much 5 Oct 2008
Format:Paperback
This is the first review I have ever written but this book is so fantastic I felt I wanted to share my thoughts with everyone. This easy to read, fun book has really changed my 8 year old sons outlook on his constant anxieties, and indeed changed his life. The author really understands what is in a worriers head and body. As my son kept saying -'this lady is a mind reader' 'how is it that she knows exactly how I feel?' The authors ability to relate to anxious children gives them the confidence to believe in the solutions she suggests. I am just about to buy my second copy to give to the school and just about to search for other books she has written. Thank you from Daniel in South Africa.

5.0 out of 5 stars a winner 4 Jun 2008
Format:Paperback
this is the first time i have felt compelled to write a review but I feel I must let people know how fantastic this book is. If you have a child who suffers with anxiety you will know how difficult it is to help and reassure them. This book is written directly for the child in ways that makes them realise they are not alone. It has pages for them to write and draw and is also funny. I could hardly get my daughter to put it down. While i am not saying it has cured my daughter it has certainly gone a long way to helping her cope with her fears. Try it I am sure you will not be dissappointed
