An urgent and necessary book by prominent child psychologist Dr Abi Gewirtz, When the World Feels Like a Scary Place brings solutions to a universal problem – how bad things happening in the world affect our children, and how we can raise engaged and confident kids in spite of them.
To say we live in an age of anxiety is an understatement. The problem is, most children can't put things in perspective, and parents (who are often anxious themselves) can have a hard time talking to their kids without making it worse. Dr Gewirtz offers clear and practical advice for having the kind of tough conversation with your kids that really helps.
Through conversation scripts, talking points, prompts and insightful asides, When the World Feels Like a Scary Place is an indispensable guide to talking to our kids about the big things that worry them – making us calmer parents with more resilient children.
