Because anxiety doesn't feel very good we tend to think it's always bad. But separation anxiety - or the fear of being apart from people you love - is a totally normal part of child development. It's also something we're meant to outgrow. When that doesn't happen separation anxiety can indeed become a big problem. This book looks at separation anxiety both as a phase and as a condition and it offers practical advice about how to conquer these fears.
Fear and anxiety are completely normal parts of growing up. Fear keeps us from climbing too high up that tree while anxiety reminds us that we ought to study for that test tomorrow. But when anxiety gets out of control it can rob kids of their educations friends and happiness. The set Childhood Fears and Anxieties takes a warm supportive look at these feelings and how they can be managed.
