The word phobia is often used as a joke - a kid might say he has a phobia of spinach, when all he really means is that he dislikes the taste. But for people with genuine phobias, the condition is no laughing matter. Whether it's heights or crowds or plane travel, phobias can make like very difficult. This book introduces readers to the most common phobias and provides useful advice about how these fears can be conquered.
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.
