Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very useful with lots of stress reduction activities  Oct 30, 2007
This book explains different types of anxiety very clearly. It also contains many stress reduction activities, you can pick and choose what is appropriate for your child based on his/her age and personality. It has been the most useful tool I've found so far.
Excellent Ideas and Information  May 17, 2005
I was reading this book at the same time as "Helping Your Anxious Child" by Sue Spence, Vanessa Cobham, Ann Wignall, and Ronald Rapee.

I quickly found myself preferring "Helping Your Anxious Child" to this one though this certainly had a lot of good information.

While this book certainly gave me a lot of insights into the nature of anxiety it seemed that some of the techniques would be much harder to implement than the approach of the other book.

Regarding relaxation techniques. This is approached in both books, but the best resource I have found for helping a young child learn relaxation techniques are the wonderful CD's by Lori Lite.

Her CD's "Indigo Dreams", "Indigo Ocean Dreams" and "Indigo Teen Dreams" are produced specifically with young children as well as teenagers in mind. They are guided meditations, affirmations, relaxation and visualization techniques that are truly suitable for kids and if you are in the same room as your kids you will benefit as well.

While the concepts contained in the above book are certainly excellent, these CD's by Ms. Lite make it considerably easier for children to relate to.

Plus they can be used to help your child sleep more soundly and can help them relax if they have bad dreams. They have very relaxing, healing music and wonderful narration that helps these wonderful stories gently lead children to a more peaceful state of mind and overall being.

Of course the material in this and the other book I mentioned are very important for dealing with the broad scope of anxiety and for knowing what tools may help. The CD's have provided an excellent and immediate safe haven for my own child as we work together on tackling the roots of her anxiety.

In fact my child was having some anxiety before school today and my wife drew a little picture of a spider and web (to represent Lori Lite's "affirmation web" which she learned from the CDs) and it helped my daughter to go to school and have a reminder throughout the day if ever she felt anxiety starting up.

Hard for the non-psychology expert to understand.  Nov 30, 2001
I found the advice impractical in the home setting. I would not recommend this book for parents or teachers. Perhaps those in the clinical setting would find it helpful.
A Must Read  Apr 3, 2000
For parents and concerned friends and relatives of anxious children, Dr. Dacey and Dr. Fiore have co-authored the definitive guide for dealing with anxious children. As a parent, and now a grandparent, I highly recommend this informative, reassuring and inspiring book.
A Wonderful Resource  Mar 17, 2000
This text finally provides tools and strategies that I can, as a parent, become an expert at using. I just wish the publisher would print more of them at a quicker pace so that my friends could pick up copies. Great book! -ms
