“From Worrier to Warrior has inspired me to work through my worries. Other kids tell their stories in the book, and that helped me think that if they can do it, so can I. The book taught me who the Worry Monster is, and that has helped me think of ways to fight him.”
-Lily, 10 year old Warrior
“I used to run away when I got scared. When I learned that it was my amygdala causing the Worry Monster to visit me, it made me feel better. I realized that I was going to be okay and that the Worry Monster was just trying to trick me. Counting to 100 and taking a break help me get rid of my worry so I can think.
“I am a mom who suffers from being a perfectionist and have tried for a long time to fight the Worry Monster myself. Now, with a daughter with the same challenges, I need strategies to help get through the teen years ahead. These books are a permanent fixture in our house, and I want to thank Dan for creating a clear path to happy times ahead.”
