I asked that he read this and explained that I knew it was for kids and that I was not trying to belittle or make fun of his worrisome nature, but I believed that he might get some benefit from it. And, he did!
Many of the self-help books that I have read are not really self-help; they are often "I'll tell you how how to ... because I'm an expert" books that are ego-boosts for the author but don't really offer true "self-help". This book lets the child (or adult) explore why they feel the way they do and offers practical, and easy ways to understand what's going on in their heads when they may face situations, as well as how to recognize situations that will cause them anxiety.
My family member was grateful for the book. Although in his mid-thirties, he said that looking at his anxiety through the eyes of a child was enlightening. Dealing with angst and anxiety on an adult level tends to be a series of lectures stating "You know that this shouldn't bother you", but this book is more of "we know this upsets you and makes you anxious, now you go and discover why that is and perhaps you can do something about it". It is less preachy and less judgemental, as well as more practical, than many adult approaches to the same subject. The exercises are simple but, in his words, "I tend to use a lot of exaggerated words when I talk, but when I write them down the obviousness of my thought process becomes apparent. My thoughts run rampant, but when I do these simple exercises I have to choose my words more carefully because they are written, and when I look at them with some time given between my writing and my reading, I realize that my original thoughts were much more destructive and over-blown than the reality of the situation. This exercise in writing, and re-reading later, made me more cautious about how I described things, and from then on, by describing them more realistically, I started to think about them more realistically. These simple exercises were very helpful."
I'd recommend this book to anyone who suffers from anxiety, regardless of their age.
Review of: Anxiety Relief Book for Kids: Activities to Understand and Overcome Worry, Fear, and Stress
We have been using this book for 2 months now. He mostly works in the book independently and I follow up with his answers and we discuss it. All the questions and activities has really helped us examine in depth the source of his anxiety. The activities help explore the complexity of anxiety and when it can be good and when it has a negative impact on us. In the 2 months we have used this I have seen a HUGE difference in his outlook. Since starting this book he has now stopped using ashwagandha and has even remarked how he feels better in situations that used to make him feel stressed.
Overall this book worked wonders for our son and I can't recommend this enough if you have a kid who has anxiety.
Anxiety Relief Book for Kids: Activities to Understand and Overcome Worry, Fear, and Stress
The chapters include: What are my worries? Why do I worry so much? What does worrying feel like? What can I do about my worry thoughts? Why won't my worries just go away? What can I do to calm my body? What can I do to calm my mind? What if my worries come back? and I've got this! Each chapter starts with a narrative and then has several activities.
Overall, this is a great book to help children work through their anxiety with a trusted adult. I would highly recommend it if you are able to take the time to walk the child through the book.
