Let's face it...anxiety can be crippling for kids and many times it is an underestimated problem.  Because Anxiety is more of a "hidden" disorder, many teachers and/or parents don't see the magnitude of the problem until it turns into something external.  Whether your child has an anxiety diosorder or suffers from intermittent (normal) anxiety for tests or other social challenges, helping them manage anxiety is one of the best gifts you can give them.

If you haven't come across any books by Dan Siegel than you are in for a treat!  He is one of my favorite authors for parenting and education.  His books are relatable and written for parents to understand, giving. a fresh outlook on parenting from a neuroscience approach.  Any of the books below are worth reading and my guess is that once you read one you will be hooked like I was and start reading the others
