When kids can't seem to stop worrying, they tend to feel like something is wrong with them, and parents tend to get frustrated. Outsmart Your Worry is an excellent tool to help combat the What-ifs. The kit starts with the idea that the child is the solution, not the problem. Worry is a clever problem, but your child can figure out what the worry is up to, and outsmart it. Tools for coping with anxiety include coming up with a nickname for the worry and drawing it to make it seem less dangerous, talking back to it, breathing and relaxation techniques and setting up worry-free zones and worry-free times of day. Tool Kits come with 20 CD-sized cards in a cool carrying case and are offered in Elementary and High School / Middle School versions. Mom Testers said: The design is cool and hip and attractive to children. The cards are fun to read together (adult and child). It provides a simple reminder on how to help kids worry less and offers them good strategies. --National Parenting Publications Awards

My little ones were excited to try out some of the activities in these cool little tool kits! I really love the design and storage cases for these cards. The cards are very durable so I don't have to worry about little hands tearing them. It is great to be able to look at the cards and be able to have a response for my little ones when they are worried about something. Knowing that these tool kits were developed by psychologists, gives me confidence in that the activities have been tested and really do help little ones! It is really amazing how well these little kits do work with kids. We highly recommend these great toolkits! --Mom Blog Review - All Because Two People Fell In Love

The new Tool Kit for Kids doesn't have anything you'd find in the local hardware store, but it's got some excellent tools for parents to help their children to deal with what my nine-year-old daughter often calls worries. Tool Kits for Kids is a great resource for parents to engage with their children and talk about their children's concerns in ways that are accessible for kids at an age appropriate level. The multi-card tool kit allows families to find ways to talk about children's concerns on their level -- learning how to IM you brain, instructions on breathing exercises, establishing worry free zones and helping children to use their imagination to conquer the fears that creep in and cause worries. As adults, we struggle with our anxieties, so imagine how much tougher it is for our children to manage the worries that are generated both internally and externally. There are so many things that can make our children anxious; it's a great thing to be able to find a way as a family to teach our children that they can take control of the thoughts that cause them concern about problems we all have to deal with throughout our lives. Being able to give PunditGirl the tools to manage the things that invade her consciousness and cause her angst is something we work on every day. The Outsmart Your Worry Tool Kit for Kids is an easy, affordable way to work with our children on conquering their anxieties in fun ways. After all, being a spy, using popcorn as an anxiety reducing tool and learning how to talk back to our brains can be fun and powerful things to bring to worries down a notch or two. --PunditMom Reviews
