"A terrific book for parents who want to know how to talk about difficult, emotional issues with children."--Nancy Eisenberg, Regents' Professor of Psychology, Arizona State University ​Includes how to talk to your kids about COVID-19. In a lifesaving guide for parents, Dr. Abigail Gewirtz shows how to use the most basic tool at your disposal--conversation--to give children real help in dealing with the worries, stress, and other negative emotions caused by problems in the world, from active shooter drills to climate change. But it's not just how to talk to your kids, it's also what to say: The heart of When the World Feels Like a Scary Place is a series of conversation scripts--with actual dialogue, talking points, prompts, and insightful asides--that are each age-appropriate and centered around different issues. Along the way are tips about staying calm in an anxious world; the way children react to stress, and how parents can read the signs; and how parents can make sure that their own anxiety doesn't color the conversation. Talking and listening are essential for nurturing resilient, confident, and compassionate children. And conversation will help you manage your anxieties too, offering a path of wholeness and security for everyone in the family. "Remarkable... Compelling advice illustrated with memorable case examples."--Ann S. Masten, PhD, Irving B. Harris Professor of Child Development, University of Minnesota
