“Khanna and Ledley, in an engaging style and full of activities, guide parents in teaching kids resilience and confidence at times when they may otherwise, unwittingly, fall into worry. The book is for all the ‘what ifs’—all the varieties of worry. This easily read and understood workbook, presented in three parts, is based on sound psychological knowledge, and provides kid-friendly examples and illustrations. In an age of increasing anxiety and worry in youth, this workbook is both highly valuable and timely?.”
—Philip C. Kendall, PhD, ABPP, Distinguished University Professor and Laura H. Carnell Professor of Psychology at Temple University --This text refers to the paperback edition.
