With today’s fast paced world it’s no wonder more and more children are suffering from anxiety. It’s a difficult world we live in these days and the social media aspect of our children’s lives add to the normal every day peer to peer pressures our children face. While my children are not on social media just yet, I can see how this fast pace everything-happens-now type of life can be a strain on our children who are not born to handle such extremes.
Stress Free Kids: A Parent’s Guide to Helping Build Self-Esteem, Manage Stress, and Reduce Anxiety in Children is almost like having a baby book how-to for new parents, we all need to have a self help book to guide us in the proper directions with our children from time to time. Society places so many demands onto a child, it’s no wonder more and more children, including my own, are being diagnosed with some level of anxiety. If you are a parent who has suffered from anxiety your own self, then it may be easier for you to work with your child but all too often I find parents who have not a clue how to uplift their anxious child. This book comes in handy as a way to open any parent’s eyes to methods that may not have been tried in their household as of yet. It’s a genuinely amazing book and I would highly recommend you take a gander at reading it.
Stress Free Kids really does guide parents to teach their children how to manage stress, worries and build self-esteem. Most of you who frequent my online ramblings know that I am a huge advocate for high self-esteem in children and making children feel secure. I am raising a child with a mood disorder and anxiety, this book has really helped me see that I have been doing a decent job all along to ensure my children have the skills to cope with today’s society but my fiance, on the other hand, wants to read this book to better learn how to handle scenarios in our household with both my kids and his teenagers. Life is all about learning and in parenting, every day is a learning experience. Think of Stress Free Kids: A Parent’s Guide to Helping Build Self-Esteem, Manage Stress, and Reduce Anxiety in Children as a pocket bible for parents raising children in today’s highly demanding world!
