Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Coping with children's fears has long been a challenge to parents, and the authors deal directly and practically with the subject. Following opening chapters on understanding and identifying a child's fear and some overall guidelines on teaching basic relaxation techniques, the authors introduce their basic plan for overcoming fear through imagination, information, observation, and exposure. Subsequent chapters apply these four techniques to specific fears, including fear of separation, animals, storms, and transportation, as well as fear of school, medicine, and death. Chapters are very specific in suggestions for helping children, and include lists of children's books, suggestions for ``positive self-talk,'' and more. Finally, the authors offer guidelines for seeking further help if the fear does not subside. Recommended for parenting collections.-- Kay Brodie, Chesapeake Coll., Wye Mills, Md.
