Anxious Kids

How children can turn their anxiety into resilience

Anxious Kids, written by bestselling parenting author Michael Grose and wellbeing expert Dr Jodi Richardson is the ultimate handbook for coping with a child’s anxiety.

Anxious Kids offers parents and educators a new perspective on children’s anxiety, encouraging them to view each episode as an opportunity to empower kids with the skills to manage anxiety and thrive.

In plain language that can be shared with children, this book outlines the origins and biology of anxiety to make sense of it – key knowledge such as why it happens, the flood of physical symptoms that comes with it, how to calm it down and why each strategy works. Grose and Richardson also give advice on a range of important steps parents and educators can take to develop emotional intelligence, tolerance of discomfort, mindfulness, resilience, thinking skills and flourishing mental health.
