Description

'A thoughtful and thoroughly useful guide for parents and carers to use with kids who experience anxiety, to help them process and master their fears and emotions.' Dr Tatiana Menick, psychiatrist

All kids go through tricky times. Bright kids can struggle to switch off their mind, creative kids often heap pressure on themselves and sensitive kids may be easily overwhelmed. When our kids worry, it's as though they give away some of their happiness.

Does a child in your life need help tackling anxiety?

The Panic Button Book for Kids is an interactive, step-by-step guide for children aged 7-11 and their caregivers. Written in everyday language and beautifully illustrated, this book is designed for grown-ups to read with their child, and is full of helpful ideas to kick anxiety to the curb and create a common language between the generations.

Through a series of colourful 'decision trees' which draw on evidence-based techniques, you can help your child work through their feelings to bring a sense of calm and relief from worry.

Life coach Tammi Kirkness has distilled the best tried-and-tested techniques from her own experience (she was a bit of a worrier, too) and those used with her many clients and students to create this indispensable 'first-aid kit' for families everywhere.
