    I haven’t finished the book yet, but this is the first thing we’ve tried that has really helped my 10 yo daughter. You have to follow the program, not just read the book. As we started having family meetings to learn about anxiety and do the exercises once/week, my daughter started talking more and more at those meetings and at other times about what’s going on for her internally. I think the topics we cover in the meetings are helping normalize her experience, and frame it less as a “problem” and more as “life management”. Her anxieties aren’t all the type that are explicitly covered in the book, but we’re finding it possible to extend the ideas to her stuff, with a little creativity. Working the exercises has helped us open some family discussions of things beyond the book, too. For example, last week we had a great chat about how people talk about anxiety as “worries and fears”, but sometimes we’ll say we’re anxious when we’re more overwhelmed than fearful or worried. Is that still anxiety? And do you manage it the same way? I’m so glad we’re finally finding a way to talk about these things together, instead of having my daughter withdraw whenever the topic comes up.

    This review is from: Helping Your Anxious Child: A Step-by-Step Guide for Parents (Paperback)
    Our six year old daughter has always been painfully shy in new situations to the point that it can prevent her from engaging in activities. Our first approaches of reassurance, expectation setting, and other suggestions gleaned from internet research never helped; however it only took reading this first chapter of this book to get several simple suggestions that made a huge difference. In fact we haven’t read the rest of the book because using these tips (especially the “worry brain” drowning out the “calm brain” concept) we were able to help our daughter manage her anxiety. A month ago she clung to us every morning when we took her to her first grade classroom and had to be peeled off us by the teacher, sometimes in tears. Now she waltzes right in and I have to remind her to give me a kiss goodbye. She still gets shy in new groups, but the paralyzing fear is gone and we have tools to deal with it if it arrives. We may have only read a part of this book but it was money well spent.

    This book was a great help for me. My 11yr old goes for therapy but I needed help dealing at home. I skip through to a part that pertains to the certain circumstance. Great help for any person that has to deal with an Anxious child.
