Book Description

Feb. 29 2008 Barron's Parenting Keys
How can parents recognize anxieties that affect their child's happiness and well being, and how can they help their child overcome them? An experienced child psychiatrist answers this important two-part question by describing various anxiety-caused behavior patterns and advising parents on ways to help their child within the context of both family and school environments. New in this edition are discussions of topics that include early adolescents coping with growth anxiety, mid-adolescents and peer pressure, and late adolescents facing social anxieties in an environment that also includes recreational drugs. She also discusses warning signs that indicate a need for professional counseling and tells parents how and where to find it. Titles in Barron's Parenting Keys series cover a wide range of childcare topics and are written by experts in pediatrics, child psychology, and related fields.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the gold standard April 11 2012
By Wilson
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a children's mental health social worker, and this book is still our primary recommendation for parents of anxious children who are readers (trust me, not everyone does their best learning with books). We have had some contact and consulation with Dr. Manassis regarding their program at Sick Kids and our program in our little town, and she really is an expert in the field and good to consult with.

Also, since this is, I would like to point out this is a Canadian doctor/author so the references and cultural context is more relevent to Canucks than some of what I've seen out of the States.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for parents Jan. 10 2012
By annamae
This book is highly recommended as a parent of an anxious child who also works with students with selective mutism who often have anxiety. This is an easy read (not a very long book either) with very practical tips for parents and insight into common approaches parents may mistakenly take and why they don't work. I read the other 2/5 stars review of this book and encourage you to ignore it - the rating was in regards to shipping/costs with amazon and nothing to do with the book itself (improper use of review system). This book is written by a doctor who has worked with childhood anxiety at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, which has an excellent reputation among people working with children with selective mutism/anxiety in the area. The author gives desensitization steps of increasing difficulty that you can apply to each situation that creates anxiety for your child. Very highly recommended to all parents of children with even mild anxiety (e.g., dogs, loud noises, swimming lessons, being left alone, school) as well as those with higher levels of anxiety and selective mutism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relief! May 29 2012
By marian - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I ordered this book because my daughter was having anxiety issues with starting Kindergarten. It was helpful as it gave me a better understanding around the derivation of her anxiety and how to help her feel more in control. (It didn't help that her teacher was a bully.)
