There are so many books available today that talk about anxiety and children that it can be difficult to decipher which book will best meet your child’s needs as well as your needs as a parent. I often recommend the following books for children and their parents when I am treating child with severe anxiety.
Books About Anxiety For Parents:
- Helping Your Anxious Child: A Step by Step Guide for Parents by Ronald Rappee, Ann Wignall and Susan Spence
- No Drama Discipline by Daniel Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson
Books About Anxiety For Children:
- Sometimes I Worry Too Much, But Now I Know How To Stop by Dawn Huebner
- What To Do When You Worry Too Much: A Kids Guide To Overcoming Anxiety by Dawn Huebner
If your child continues to exhibit severe anxiety that is affecting his/her daily functioning at home and/or school I would recommend that you seek a consultation from a mental health therapist to further assess the severity of your child’s anxiety and to gain support for your family.
