Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Living with IT and Taming the Black Dog comes a practical guide for parents of anxious children. 

If your child too often: seeks reassurance, invents illnesses, avoids interactions, avoids trying new things, becomes emotional over minor upsets, or is clingy, afraid to sleep alone, reluctant to go to school, or scared of numerous things...then anxiety could be an issue for them.

Commonly, a child experiencing anxiety doubts themselves, lacks confidence, and becomes easily overwhelmed. So how do you best help them?

From Australia's best-selling anxiety expert, Bev Aisbett, comes an essential guide for these anxious times. Worry-Proofing Your Anxious Child is a calm, clear, and, above all, reassuring guide to help parents (and teachers) of anxious children. Filled with simple explanations and practical advice, this guide will assist everyone who wants to help a child overcome their anxieties and learn to live more confidently. 

Bev Aisbett is Australia's leading author in books around managing anxiety. In 1993, after recovering from severe anxiety and depression herself, Bev turned to her artistic talents to create the first of her groundbreaking illustrated self-help books Living with IT: A Survivor's Guide to Panic Attacks, which rapidly became a national best seller, with more than 200,000 copies sold. In 2013, HarperCollins published the fully revised and updated 20th anniversary edition of this classic book.
