Racing heart, difficulty breathing, persistent worry, lack of concentration, avoiding difficult situations – this is anxiety, and children are experiencing it in unprecedented numbers. Symptoms of anxiety can start as early as four years old, and it’s impairing children’s ability to enjoy the world.
Anxious Kids, written by Bestselling author Michael Grose and leading researcher and educator Dr Jodi Richardson is the ultimate handbook for coping with your child’s anxiety. Anxious Kids will give you strategies and techniques to help your child manage anxiety. Grose and Richardson also give advice on a range of important steps parents can take to develop emotional intelligence, tolerance of discomfort, mindfulness, resilience, thinking skills and flourishing mental health. In doing so, parents can reduce the impact of anxiety, enabling children of all ages to live their lives in full colour.
