Book Review: Braver Stronger Smarter: A Girl's Guide To Overcoming Worry and Anxiety

From The Back:

"This book helped me remember how brave I am!"--AnnabelleWant to know something? Girls who worry the most are some of the smartest, kindest girls around. The worry you feel happens because you care deeply about things and people. You try hard and want to do the right thing, which is wonderful. But it's not fun to feel pressure, is it? That's why Sissy Goff wrote this book. To help you know how brave and strong and smart you really are.

Whether you're a mom, dad, aunt, or grandmother, you can help the girl you love overcome her worry and anxiety. This interactive guide--created for elementary-age girls but helpful for all ages--teaches you and your girl practical ways to work through overwhelming emotions. With fun stories and writing and drawing prompts to guide her, your girl will feel empowered, knowing she is deeply loved by a God who is bigger than her fears.

Also available from Sissy Goff! Raising Worry-Free Girls, a companion book that provides more in-depth information and strategies for parents and educators.
My Reflections: 
What a great way to connect with your child on a level they understand. I wish books like this were out when I was a child.  This book is recommended for the ages of 6-18. I feel the younger you start addressing these issues the better, however, it's never too late, I'm still working on this stuff!
Learning how to cope and manage worry and anxiety is paramount for everyone in today's fast-paced world. There is never a better time to start than now. So if you have a child who is struggling or if you just want to educate them for their future this would be a fantastic resource. 

This is a workbook designed to be a fun and engaging way for children to learn how to cope with their big emotions. I recommend you purchase the companion book "Raising Worry-Free Girls" It is more geared to the parent, but follows the same elements. Addressing the worry monster, understanding, help and hope. This is all presented in a fun and creative manner giving your child the opportunity to jot down notes, draw pictures and imagine themselves as stronger, braver and smarter!

I encourage you to take a look at both of the above-mentioned books (You can see my review for the first parent book "Raising Worry-Free Girls" on my Blog.)
I'm so glad authors like Sissy Goff take issues like these and help parents put them into practice to tame that "Worry Monster."
