Raising Confident, Happy Children by Anthony Gunn
Book DescriptionWhat do you do when your son refuses to go to bed because of the monster in the cupboard? Or when your daughter panics before a school play? Or when the death of the family pet prompts anxiety that you're about to drop off the mortal coil? How can we possibly equip our children with all that they need to grow up confident, resilient and brave? Anthony Gunn, psychologist, author and father of a primary schooler, knows exactly how difficult it can be to raise children with a sense of strength and courage. In Raising Confident, Happy Children, he offers forty helpful approaches, explaining common fears and setbacks and how to combat them. From fear of spiders to conversation nerves, the book covers a whole range of issues that feed into how confident your child is in the world. Anthony also explains how parents can manage themselves so that they can support - but not smother - their children and allay myriad childhood fears, no matter how trivial.

Anthony regularly speaks to sporting and social clubs, schools and professional institutions about psychology and fear, and has appeared on television with his carpet python, Ernie, and his bird-eating spider, Flossy.
