One Simple Technique to Help Children Overcome Anxiety!

Maybe your children struggle with

Scardies Away book
  • The dark
  • Noises at night
  • Sleeping in their own beds
  • Going to school
  • Playing a sport
  • Social gatherings with large crowds
  • Spiders or snakes
  • Fear of bodily sensations
  • Talking in front of class
  • Fear of rejection
  • Fear of an angry teacher
  • Fear of storms/natural disasters

These are just some of the most common fears young children suffer
from as they grow and develop.

We have been conditioned to reassure children that their fears are not real, that monsters do not hide in closets, that it’s easy to speak in front of a group or to make new friends.

But those fears are very real to children!

Yes, children need to be reassured when anxious, but what is equally, if not more important, is that they internalize reassurance and feel a sense of power over their fears.

We have asked some of our readers what they thought of Scaredies Away.

“'This wonderful book is a must for all parents to help their children to normalise the symptoms of anxiety. What a gift to give to our children.' ”.


Dr Harry Barry (MD, author and mental health advocate)

“Children get scared. And if their fears are not coped with in childhood, they follow them into adulthood and affect relationships,professionally and personally. I have worked with Barry's Panic Away program for some years and recommended it to individuals who needed additional assistance. ”.

Judy H. Wright aka "Auntie Artichoke"

“Thinking back as a child, I would have loved this book. I was sure witches were in the trees outside my windows. The fears increased from there. I had anxiety symptoms when I started school, staying at friends houses, visiting my grandparents, riding the school bus, going to Disneyland-you name it. ”.
