Kids can have the strangest fears, and yet we all seem to treat such fears in the worst possible ways. We shrug them off and think that our kids will outgrow them, or we advise our kids to suck it up, or we refer to the abstract by saying, "There is nothing to fear but fear itself," which probably means nothing to a 3-year-old or even a teenager.
The dangers of mistreating a child's fear can be, at its simplest, a lifelong mild phobia to, at its most complicated, self-harm, self-sabotage, and even substance abuse. So how do we know when to talk our children out of fear over milk and cookies and when to seek professional help? Donna Pincus's GROWING UP BRAVE tells us how, and it's nothing to be afraid of.
With social and academic pressures at an all-time high, one in five children today suffers from a diagnosed anxiety disorder and many others go undiagnosed. More children than ever are being prescribed psychotropic drugs. In GROWING UP BRAVE, nationally recognized childhood anxiety expert Dr. Donna Pincus demonstrates that excessive anxiety is manageable and even preventable when parents learn how to identify and understand it and respond by using convenient and simple parenting techniques. The book's effective tools teach parents:
- how to promote a warm, secure attachment with their child in only five minutes a day
-develop routines that help ward off anxiety
-implement Dr. Pincus's "bravery ladder"
-and much more.
GROWING UP BRAVE is an empowering and valuable guide that will leave parents equipped to help their child regain confidence and happiness.
