First time jitters are normal, but when they turn into tears and outright refusal, the world shrinks in problematic ways. Facing Mighty Fears About Trying New Things teaches children to manage uncertainty about new experiences. Fun Facts engage children while a Note to Parents and Caregivers and a supplemental Resource section make this the perfect guide for parents and mental health professionals.
This book is part of the Dr. Dawn's Mini Books About Mighty Fears series, designed to help children ages 6-10 tackle their fears and live happier lives.
Dawn Huebner explains worry and fear to children with a tone that is confident, warm and straight-forward. Never condescending, always creative, and packed full of examples and instructions, the Mighty Fears books teach children and caring adults how to move forward with a plan. She knows kids, she knows worry, and she knows what helps.
