Anxiety affects more children and teens than any other psychiatric illness, but it’s also the most treatable emotional disorder.

    Albano's approach and advice is proving to be so helpful for my husband and I as we seek to help our anxious 8yo navigate daily issues. We appreciate her compassion for parents and kids, and the endless examples that she has to share from her own extensive experience. 4.5 stars, highly recommend to other parents. Small gripe: her section on anxiety and school. She acknowledges that there are many, many things about school that are an endless source of misery for a lot of children, especially anxi Albano's approach and advice is proving to be so helpful for my husband and I as we seek to help our anxious 8yo navigate daily issues.

Small gripe: her section on anxiety and school. She acknowledges that there are many, many things about school that are an endless source of misery for a lot of children, especially anxious children, yet never considers that being forced to spend 40+ hours/week in this environment against their will may not be a good idea. I realize that not every family has the freedom to homeschool/unschool, or even to find an alternative school option that better suits their child, but I'd hope that someone in Albano's position would have at least had the THOUGHT: Hey, maybe our current school system isn't good for kids... maybe it could be reformed in a way that wouldn't be so soul-sucking for them? Maybe we can do better for our kids than getting them to "cope" or "survive" this. It seems like she accepts without question that it has to be this way (it doesn't), and has always been this way (it hasn't - compulsory schooling is very recent in the grand scheme of things, especially its obsessive focus on standardized testing).

    A really good read on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I loved how it teaches parents how their choices of parenting affect their children, without making you feel like a bad parent. Really good read for all parents. But especially for those who have worriers, clingers or anxious kids.

    Our usually independent kiddo has been dealing with separation anxiety and this book offered some helpful strategies. It is divided into three parts, one for separation anxiety, the second for generalized anxiety, and the third for social anxiety. So I read the first two sections and didn't feel like i missed out. Dr. Albano bases her techniques on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which I was familiar and knew they would work. But even for a CBT newbie, this was a helpful book.
