The Opposite of Worry
The Playful Parenting Approach to Childhood Anxieties and FearseBook - 2013
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, provides a special set of tools to handle childhood anxiety. Offering simple, effective strategies that build connection through fun, play, and empathy, Dr. Cohen helps parents start from a place of warmth, compassion, and understanding teach children the basics of the body's "security system": alert, alarm, assessment, and all clear.
