A gentle, practical guide for parents and carers of anxious children who are finding it difficult to navigate their child’s worries

Children are often reluctant to speak about their worries or don’t have the language to articulate them. This makes it difficult to know how serious their concerns are and how you can support them.

This guide offers quick-to-action parenting solutions, effective coping strategies and simple lifestyle changes to help you help your child. With these tools, your child will be able to express their feelings and manage their anxiety by building resilience and self-confidence for life.

Inside this book, you will learn how to:
· Identify the source of your child’s anxiety
· Help your child practise calming techniques when they feel anxious
· Teach your child simple relaxation exercises
· Instil good habits in your child’s routine, including better sleep and diet
· Know when to seek support
