In this practical parenting resource, Allison Edwards guides you through the mental and emotional porcess of where your child's fears come from and why they are so hard to move past. For emotionally intelligent, observant, and inquisitive children who want to overcome anxiety, and for parents looking for a kid-friendly toolkit, Why Smart Kids Worry is the perfect resource that gives answers to questions such as:

  • How do smart kids think differently?
  • What is the root of my child's anxiety and how can we overcome it?
  • Should I let my child watch th enightly  news on TV?
  • How do I answer questions about terrorist, hurricanes, and other scary subjects?
