Anxiety is the number one mental health problem facing young people today. Childhood should be a happy and carefree time, yet more and more children today are exhibiting symptoms of anxiety, from bedwetting and clinginess to frequent stomach aches, nightmares, and even refusing to go to school. Parents everywhere want to know: All children have fears, but how much is normal? How can you know when a stress has crossed over into a full-blown anxiety disorder? Most parents don't know how to recognize when there is a real problem and how to deal with it when there is. In Freeing Your Child from Anxiety, a childhood anxiety disorder specialist examines all manifestations of childhood fears, including social anxiety, Tourette's Syndrome, hair-pulling, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and guides you through a proven program to help your child back to emotional safety. No child is immune from the effects of stress in today's media-saturated society. Fortunately, anxiety disorders are treatable. By following these simple solutions, parents can prevent their children from needlessly suffering today-and tomorrow.

"The master of providing clear, accessible, practical advice and guidance for wise and loving care of the anxious child." (Jeffrey M. Schwartz, M.D., author of Dear Patrick)
If you are interested in this book, it is because you NEED it. With that in mind, I might suggest that you will inevitably want a written or e-book version. The reason is that it is highly unlikely that EVERY chapter is relevant for the issues someone you know is dealing with. You should expect that many chapters/advice will want to be read, re-read, highlighted and/or bookmarked as reference, while others will be completely skipped.
(I listened to this entire book, but decided to order a paperback copy as well when I was only 1/3 through the listen)
Great resource for any patent with a child struggling with anxiety. Written with compassion and expertise.
I didn't read the print version because I couldn't find the time.
Very wonderful performance by Xe Sands. She made the material understandable and relatable.
If you have a child with anxiety this book will help, hands down.
