One in eight children and adolescents are affected by anxiety each year. In addition, 40 million adults are diagnosed with anxiety in a given year, and each was once a child who likely suffered from worry and fear. Imagine how different their lives would be if they had been given the tools to overcome their worry and fear when they were young? You can give your child this knowledge now.

Parents will learn simple steps to help their children, of all ages, fight and overcome their worries and fears. Detailed examples and illustrations invite readers to identify with each of the warriors in the book who have learned to tame and conquer their fears.
