Summary While serious anxiety affects 1 in 5 children and teens, virtually every child has anxious moments and feelings of worry or dread. The Fear Fix approaches anxiety as a normal-process of thinking and feeling that occurs naturally in people of all ages. Friendly and authoritative, the book helps parents understand the difference between "normal" and more serious anxiety so that parents know when professional help is required and when "home treatment" is appropriate.
