I will FOREVER sing the praises of these books and @hey_sigmund. As someone who suffered from childhood anxiety myself and as a professional who works daily with children trying to understand and cope with their anxieties I am SO thankful I found Hey Warrior and Hey Awesome. These books breakdown anxiety and the role of the brain and amygdala in protecting us and keeping us safe. It provides kids with tools to understand their worries, validates how they are feeling, and empowers them to take control of their thoughts.
If you’ve never read it, I highly recommend! .
