About the Author
Praise For Growing Up Brave: Expert Strategies for Helping Your Child Overcome Fear, Stress, and Anxiety…
"Pediatricians and parents are concerned about the increasing use of anti-anxiety prescription drugs for children. Growing Up Brave gives children stress-busting skills so they will need less pills. I highly recommend it!"—William Sears, MD, coauthor of The Successful Child
"A wonderful book that should be helpful to any family today, especially those with fearful and anxious children (and parents). Dr. Pincus's most useful message is to teach parents to calm down, don't rush the child off to a psychiatrist for meds, don't jump to the conclusion that the child has an attentional or learning problem. Parents are usually the best resource when their child is under stress; Pincus teaches them, in very concrete and specific ways with many instantly recognizable examples, exactly how to provide what the child needs."—Richard O'Connor, PhD, author of Undoing Depression
