    Default Toddler Suffering From Anxiety

    Hi there!

    My dd is 2.5 years old and suffers from anxiety. It's not just separation anxiety, it is actual anxiety disorder.
    I am trying to find a good book to read and was wondering if anyone can suggest one?
    I bought one a while ago but it is more applicable to older children.
    Has anyone else got a toddler with anxiety?

    Default Toddler Suffering From Anxiety

    I have a daughter with anxiety too.

    She certainly makes life full on some times.

    I don't have any books, in fact I have never thought about reading any.
    I talk to my psychologist about her and she has given me some great info and tools.

    I will be looking forward to seeing if anyone else posts with some good reading.

    Thanks for your reply! I agree, life can be very full on!

    We recently saw a pediatrician and he recommended we see a child psychologist to help with some tools.

    Thanks again, and if I do stumble upon one I will let you know!

    Subscribing jic there is a later book recommendation as my 4yo is anxious (more socially anxious which we saw a psych about, but also a bit generally anxious).

    There is some general advice on various web sites (be reassuring, do small steps for things that make them anxious, try relaxation methods etc) but a book would be great as well.
