ABOUT THE BOOK
As a parent, you can use certain strategies to help your elementary-aged daughter when she struggles with worry and anxiety. But it is also important that she learn how to work through her emotions on her own.
This illustrated guide--created for girls ages 6 to 11, the stage when anxiety issues often surface--will help your daughter see how brave, strong, and smart God made her. Through easy-to-read stories and writing and drawing prompts, she will learn practical ways to fight back when worries come up. She will feel empowered, knowing she is deeply loved by a God who is bigger than her fears. This level of trust is the spiritual antidote to anxiety and the path to feeling capable and confident in any situation.
Counselor Sissy Goff has written a companion book to Raising Worry-Free Girls and even though the target age group for this book is elementary girls, I believe that Braver Stronger Smarter will be of benefit to ALL girls. This book continues to address the 'Worry Monster' and it also covers the same three topics of Understanding, Help, and Hope but this book is more of a workbook. It has fun stories, appealing black and white line illustrations, a space to answer questions and jot down thoughts, and even drawing prompts to help a young girl envision herself as being braver, stronger, and smarter.
I am fortunate to have the adult version, Raising Worry-Free Girls, and I am thrilled to have this companion book to help my granddaughter face her fears and worries and conquer that 'Worry Monster'!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House but there was no obligation to write a positive review. These are my honest thoughts.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
