When the World Feels Like a Scary Place

Essential Conversations for Anxious Parents and Worried Kids

In a lifesaving guide for parents, Dr. Abigail Gewirtz shows how to use the most basic tool at your disposal — conversation — to give children real help in dealing with the worries, stress, and other negative emotions caused by problems in the world, from the pandemic to natural disasters. When the World Feels Like a Scary Place is full of conversation scripts — with actual dialogue, talking points, prompts, and insightful asides — that are each age-appropriate and centered around different issues.

Along the way are tips about staying calm in an anxious world; the way children react to stress, and how parents can read the signs; and how parents can make sure that their own anxiety doesn't color the conversation. Talking and listening are essential for nurturing resilient, confident, and compassionate children. And conversation will help you manage your anxieties too, offering a path of wholeness and security for everyone in the family.
