Does your child seem to worry often?
Perhaps they have frequent stomach aches, or are irritable, tearful, angry, or withdrawn?
Do they have problems concentrating or show a loss of enthusiasm for their usual interests?
These could all be signs that your child is struggling with anxiety.
This practical guide combines proven cognitive-behavioral therapy methods used by child psychologists in schools with simple activities to help your child overcome anxiety. It’s perfect for children ages 8 to 12 because a lot happens in these years that can impact a child’s emotional well-being, not just now but for years to come.
Your child will be guided, with the help of Fiz—a friendly and supportive character they can identify with—through fun and engaging activities interspersed with useful tips, inspirational statements, and practical information for parents.
