Mom's Choice Award Winner!

Worry and anxiety are on an upswing. In fact, anxiety is the most frequent of all mental disorders in children. High levels of stress and big emotions related to social situations, sensory issues, or general frustration are common in children who live with anxiety disorders. Such stress can lead to a loss of control, resulting in aggressive behavior, such as screaming, throwing things or even hurting someone. Suffering from prolonged anxiety disorders can also seriously impact success in academic achievement and cause children to avoid social and extracurricular activities. Now with a special section on evidence-based teaching activities for parents and teachers alike, this best-selling children's classic just became even better and more relevant. Engaging and easy-to-read, this illustrated book is filled with opportunities for children with anxiety disorders to participate in developing their own self-calming strategies. Children who use the simple strategies in this charming book, illustrated by the author, will find themselves relaxed and ready to focus on work or play behavior, self-regulation, regulation, preschool, elementary and anxiety. Foreword by Brenda Smith Myles, PhD.

Also available in French.
