You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
- Eleanor Roosevelt

When you live your life in a cautionary crouch, the greatest relief of all may come from simply standing up.
- Steve Phillipson

  • Thank you for this post. This may not make any sense to you- but it has helped me. Thanks again!

  • I’ve had to learn more and more through this journey as my 11 year old has struggled for over 6 years
    w/ anxiety. When I came across this book I felt that it is was the first time that I could read about
    anxiety from the child’s perspective and really had some ‘AH-HA” moments. We copied passages
    and taped them into a personal journal to read when some guidance is needed. Thank you for
    writing such a straight-forward and helpful book. Even w/ all the cognitive behavioral therapy my child has had, this
    book really hit the major points of anxiety and helped me very much to understand the struggle
    of living day in and day out w/ anxiety. Excellent…thank you! I’ve recommended this book to many families
    that have children with ‘fear’ issues. I think it has helped these families to recognize the signs and see that they are
    dealing w/ anxiety. The more we learn, the more we can help our children live less paralyzing lives
    and have the strategies to face anxiety. Thank you.
