Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents

7 Ways to Stop the Worry Cycle and Raise Courageous and Independent Children

Amazon.com Rating:

With anxiety at epidemic levels among our children, Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents offers a contrarian yet effective approach to help children and teens push through their fears, worries, and phobias to ultimately become more resilient, independent, and happy. It presents seven core principles that can be successfully applied to any anxiety-related problem.

From their success with hundreds of organizations, schools, and families, Reid Wilson, PhD, and Lynn Lyons, LICSW, address the biggest myths, misconceptions, and mistakes that parents and professionals make when dealing with fears and phobias — which only perpetuate the worry cycle — with tips and tools for how to avoid them. And, since new research reveals how anxious parents typically make for anxious children, the book offers exercises and techniques to change both the children's and the parental patterns of thinking and behaving.
