A wonderful resource for families and therapists. Natasha has broken down anxiety into a variety of shapes and sizes to assist parents in understanding what it can look like. She has given the child a voice to offer different perspectives. In the end it comes down to what can I, as a parent, do to make this easier for my child. This book offers an abundance of possible ways to help your child manage anxiety.

I love this book! It covers an extremely wide range of issues that may present in the anxious toddler... Each chapter begins with a vignette that gives voice to the toddler as well as the parent. Many chapters provide "scripts" for parents to use or adapt. After 33 years as a developmental and behavioral pediatrician, even I learned new things, but, as the author states, no one is perfect.

Natasha provides sound advice and methods that work. Our family has gained sanity in a world that, before receiving her help, was out of control. So many situations in this book described our anxious child exactly and it has become a favorite reference. I feel as though I have someone in my corner who understands the daily struggles of being a parent to an anxious child and is there to help.
One of the hardest things about parenting a child with anxiety is a feeling of isolation - when all the "handy tips" and parenting advice is working for other children but not solving issues for your own, where do you turn? This book is quite literally a companion for the journey. Practical advice - explanations that make you sigh with relief at the recognition that you aren't alone and can help your child feel safer in the world.

This book is written by a well qualified and experienced American Child Therapist, Natasha Daniels, who is also a mum of three... The book, aimed at parents, carers and professionals, (...) a very accessible read, divided into chapters tackling common difficulties. It's a very instructive and enjoyable read and I have been happily recommending it.
