Bring fun and adventure back into your child’s life.

Today’s kids face intense pressures at school, with friends, and in life. But one of the most prevalent causes of worry in children is the fear of the unknown. Whether they are starting at a new school, trying out for a new sport, or going to a sleepover—for many kids who worry, it can be difficult moving from “What if?” to "Why not?" and trying new things. Sound familiar? Written for children ages seven to twelve, this engaging workbook offers evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) tools to help kids embrace uncertainty and actually change their thoughts and behaviors by taking action—which will help bring adventure, fun, and freedom back into their lives! The practices in this workbook can be used anytime, anyplace, to help kids put a stop to worry before worry takes over. Childhood is a precious time that goes by so quickly, and chronic worrying can take a hefty toll both mentally and physically. Teaching kids how to deal with stress early will set them up for a lifetime of happiness and success. This workbook can help you do just that.
