Whether it's the monster in the closet or the fear that arises from new social situations, school, or sports, anxiety can be especially challenging and maddening for children. And since anxiety has a mind of its own, logic and reassurance often fail, leaving parents increasingly frustrated about how to help. Now Lawrence J. Cohen, Ph.D., the author of Playful Parenting, offers simple, effective strategies that build connection through fun, play, and empathy. Dr. Cohen helps parents and children experience the opposite of worry, anxiety, and fear and embrace connection, trust, and joy.
"Anxiety is a full-body sport, and Cohen's main advice is not to treat it with words but with actions... Physicality is about living in the present, and for anxious people, the present is a powerful place of healing. Intended for parents of children ages 3 to 15, this book offers anecdotes and fun anti-anxiety games." -- Publishers Weekly
