Whether during a time of crisis or in everyday life, our kids today may be more anxious than ever

Clinical anxiety is on the rise, and teachers are seeing more students struggling with the pressures of school and society. Educators are often ill-equipped to help the anxious child, and need anxiety tips to help students who have this mental illness.

Whether you have anxiety or want to advocate for anxious kids, this book will change your thinking and encourage you to take risks in the classroom, because you never know, what if it turns out right?

In this fifth book in the Lead Forward Series, Christine Ravesi-Weinstein, a teacher, presenter, and school leader, shares practical, time-tested strategies to create anxiety relief for kids and help educators and parents advocate for anxious students and those with social anxiety.

Different than other teen anxiety books, Anxious provides teachers and parents with anxiety help for kids, and strategies to cope with adult anxiety, too. Through her own experience with anxiety and her role as an educator, she shows you how to:

  • Recognize when anxiety causes students to avoid assignments and skip class
  • Build relationships by asking questions first
  • Help students understand the mind-body connection and become self-advocates
  • Create safe environments with authenticity, vulnerability, and routines

Christine Ravesi-Weinstein brings you the stories and strategies you need to help your anxious kids, starting today.
