$7.99
Millions know Georgia Witkin from her years as "tip doctor" at WNBC's "Live at Five" (a favorite with at-home parents); as a regular guest on Imus in the Morning; and as a guest on every major talk show, including "20/20" and repeat appearances on Oprah. Hundreds of thousands more have read her landmark books on adult stress, based on her work as a psychiatry professor and director of a major medical center's stress program. Now, in "KidStress," she turns her attention to an escalating new problem. Children today experience more stress and more feelings of vulnerability and anxiety than ever before. And as Dr. Witkin knows, when children are stressed, so are their parents. But Dr. Witkin's own studies--including a first-ever survey of children themselves--find that parents rarely identify their children's prime stress factors or see their "secret symptoms." Her refreshing and encouraging book discusses all the major childhood stressors, from academic pressure, family issues (including sibling and parent conflict), and peer relations to media violence and children's very real fears about the world around them. And Witkin addresses the symptoms of stress, from insomnia to anxiety to an inability to focus attention. She tells you how to determine if your children are "overloaded, " and how you can help them--at any age or stage--to help themselves. Best of all, it reveals that most childhood stress is not caused by parents! "KidStress" offers the most effective strategies parents can teach their kids for school, family, peers, and the world.
