Statistics tell us that we are experiencing a uniquely safe period of history - but you wouldn't know it from the evening news. This book looks at fears of violence, attempting to sort realistic concerns from unrealistic panic. By explaining concepts like probability and risk, as well as providing insight into how the media works, this book strives to help kids manage their anxieties about our uncertain world.
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.
