Whether it's the monster in the closet or the fear that arises from new social situations, school, or sports, anxiety can be especially challenging and maddening for children. And since anxiety has a mind of its own, logic and reassurance often fail, leaving parents increasingly frustrated about how to help. Now Lawrence J. Cohen, PhD, the author of Playful Parenting, provides a special set of tools to handle childhood anxiety.

I have both the print version and audio of this book. I often don't have time to sit and read but referencing information is helpful with a printed book of course. The audio was easy to follow and understand. The reader was great with a soothing voice. Cohen gives great practical solutions to facing anxieties in a realistic way. He understands anxiety and he understands how to connect with children. It's already made a big difference in my family of anxious children.
