Children aren’t immune to stress. Kids are especially prone to feel fear before stressful events in their lives. Family, school, and team sports schedules have been crammed into their daily activities so extensively that many children are robbed of their free recreational “growth” time and an alarming number of kids are experiencing high levels of stress because of this. All of these realities can lead to our children having the same kinds of fears and concerns we adults have, especially about things they often have no control over. In this invaluable book, author J.S. Jackson helps children explore attitudes and ideas to try and diminish some of the stress they feel in their lives. (From publisher.)

Illustrations include 93 black-and-white figures and 14 color plates. (From publisher.)
Stress columnist Amanda Enayati challenges our long-held assumptions about stress, painting a groundbreaking picture of what is commonly referred to as the plague of modern life. Weaving together stories, research from science, history, philosophy and ancient faiths, and everyday exercises, she presents ten revolutionary principles that help us differentiate between destructive and constructive stress, and to master stress in the everyday by learning how to:
• Shift our perceptions to interpret inevitable challenges in a way that serves us better.
• Embrace a narrative that casts stress as a pathway to adaptation and growth.
• Commit to breaks, buffers, and protective practices that will minimize and neutralize the adverse impact of toxic stress.
Drawing on extensive research and remarkable stories, Seeking Serenity presents a clear and accessible action plan to achieving more joyful and productive lives, and stronger communities. (From back cover).
