From the Note to Parents:

If you are the parent or caregiver of an anxious child, you know what it feels like to be held hostage. So does your child. Children who worry too much are held captive by their fears. They go to great lengths to avoid frightening situations, and ask the same anxiety-based questions over and over again. Yet the answers give them virtually no relief. Parents and caregivers find themselves spending huge amounts of time reassuring, coaxing, accommodating, and doing whatever else they can think of to minimize their childs distress.

But it doesnt work. The anxiety remains in control. As you have undoubtedly discovered, simply telling an anxious child to stop worrying doesnt help at all. Nor does applying adult logic, or allowing your child to avoid feared situations, or offering reassurance every time the fears are expressed.

Anxiety is one of the most common and most frequently overlooked disorders of childhood. These kids tend to be overly shy, concerned about what people will think of them, worried about bad things happening to them or people they love, or nervous about being exposed to new situations. These thoughts can get in the way of their regular activities and cause problems with school, sleep, behavior, and even physical symptoms like headaches or abdominal pain. Anxiety was, until recently, nearly entirely overlooked in pediatric training programs; fortunately we are becoming better at recognizing and treating it. This book is designed for parents to read with year-old children. The book discusses anxiety in child-friendly language and guides children and parents through many of the principles used in CBT.
