This week’s recommendation comes from Library Assistant Phyllis Hernandez at the North-East Branch.
Phyllis chose “When the World Feels Like a Scary Place: Essential Conversations for Anxious Parents & Worried Kids” By Abigail Gewirtz.
“How do we explore our feelings and have a healthy conversation with children during difficult times? 2020 has been an emotional roller coaster!” Phyllis said. “From natural disasters, social justice, divided society, and a worldwide pandemic. If you are a parent like me, you may often feel confused and unsure on how to start the conversation. Abigail Gewirtz teaches us how to recognize stress in both adults and children. Helps us recognize those big emotions and how to respond to them. We learn how conversation is our best defense and the key to nurturing resilient, and compassionate children.”
“When the World Feels Like a Scary Place: Essential Conversations for Anxious Parents & Worried Kids” can be accessed as a E-Book or as a paper copy through the Kansas City Public Library.
