Sometimes my child worries … what do I do?
This book is a support book to be used in conjunction with the children’s book Sometimes I worry….how about you?
The material contained in this book delves further into the world of children’s anxiety, resulting in a greater awareness and understanding of it by the adult. Therefore, acting as a valuable sourse of information around helping the child to manage their anxiety. It looks at important topics like talking to your child about anxiety and being vigilant of their mental well-being. It discusses essential issues such as confidence building, resilience, the power of the imagination, choice and important life skills such as problem solving and planning to name but a few.
One of the overall aims of this support book however, is to act as a pro-active, strategic and pre-emptive aid to parents and guardian in managing children’s anxiety within the home. The ‘tricks’ taught by Mo, the lovable little anxious creature in the children’s book, are explained further with the adult in mind.
The books are separate, therefore, the child does not have access to information and language they are not fully able to comprehend yet.

“Well-researched, innovative, relevant and timely. Going forward, I think this could be a real game changer in aiding our young children develop and maintain a good foundation for mental well-being.”
Mari Gregan Hypnotherapist/Psychotherapist
“The real importance of this book lies in demystifying anxiety for both the child and guardian. In child-friendly language, it describes what is happening in the flight or fight response for children. Which actually takes the mystery out of it and normalises it for children. That, in itself, gives the child the tools to be able to deal with their own feelings. How Mo, the anxious little creature, explains and supports the child through a set of ‘tricks’ empowers the child to help themselves. And being able to manage the anxiety by themselves gives both the child and the parent or guardian back that sense of control.”
Sheila Haskins Counsellor/Psychotherapist
“From time to time we all need a ‘Superhero’ to help us along the way especially at times when we feel nervous or worried………and here is Mo to show us how! By using ‘tricks’ Mo walks us through different emotions and feelings in this beautifully illustrated book and explains just how this can be achieved. The parent’s book (insert name here) sits alongside giving an in-depth knowledge into what anxiety is and how best to support, in a fun way, their young child through tough times. As a psychotherapist working in the area of childhood anxiety I am delighted to endorse these two books (names here) they are innovative in their approach and offer invaluable support for both parents and young children.”
Primary School Teacher
“This child friendly approach to the whole area of anxiety is illustrated in a colourful, fun and easy to follow book aimed at young children. Parents and carers can sit with their young children and ‘walk through’ Mo’s worries and fears and learn ‘tricks’ from Mo to assist the child. Sometimes my child worries… what do I do? explains in detail the knowledge needed to help their children along the way! As a teacher I welcome these books as an aid in assisting young children and parents/guardians alike to deal with anxiety.”
