Helping Young Worriers Beat the WorryBug is a practical go-to guide for anyone who is interested in helping kids thrive emotionally.
Written by renowned Australian Child-psychologist, Dr. John Irvine in a collaborative venture with Andi Green, the creator of the WorryWoo Monsters, this book acknowledges the growing problem of anxiety in kids –everywhere, which calls for immediate and timely attention.
Dr. John, as he is known “Down Under,” has tackled the issue by presenting sensible advice for parents, educators and other caretakers in his latest booklet. It includes background info on the origin of worry, an assessment guide to help determine the problem, as well as fun-filled activities to deal with the worries that kids encounter in today’s society. Useful suggestions combined with a touch of the whimsical, provided by Green’s drawings of Wince, the main character from her award winning Don’t Feed the WorryBug, serve to keep the adults as well as children, engaged in meaningful dialogue.
