My Little Book of Worries
A Worry Workbook for kids to support them with anxiety with the help of a Worry Owl!
Worries are normal. Many children mention they have worries and a little explanation and guidance on how to deal with them can really help them when worries start to impact everyday life.
What is My Little Book of Worries?
My Little Book of Worries is perfect for inspiring conversations about what anxiety and worry is. It helps children understand why they worry, to recognise the signs of worrying and will guide parent and child to find ways they can manage their worries.
How will this workbook help my child?
This workbook will help your child develop a deeper understanding of anxiety. The book features two characters (Roaring Dinosaur and Wise Owl) who help children understand what is happening in the brain when they are worrying or reacting to a worry. It also teaches anxiety management techniques they can use and provides them with space to think through solutions, encouraging them to engage their rational thinking brain.
