A common mistake parents of anxious children make is trying to solve problems for them.

Worried you'll set off a meltdown with the wrong word? 

It's never too late to learn the right tools. Your child's mental health (and yours) is a worthy investment.

During my 2018 book tour for Little Panic: Dispatches from an Anxious Life, I discovered something shocking.

Many parents and teachers were unknowingly using the same outdated methods that exacerbated my anxiety over 40 years ago.  

These methods probably aren't helping you either.  

To address this issue, I started giving talks to expose the harmful effects of these obsolete approaches and provide better, more effective strategies.  

The response was huge, reaching thousands from schools to seminars, even covering an entire Canadian island.

This course grew from those eye-opening discussions.

Be the support your child needs.

I am your anxious child, now grown up.

To live the expansive life I craved meant overcoming a lifelong panic disorder that limited me.

You and your child can do this too.

It's not your fault for lacking the necessary tools.

Missteps and difficulties aren't your fault either.

Chronic anxiety isn't a lifelong sentence.

It's never too late to amend and improve.

It's never too late to learn how to manage anxiety.

Amanda Stern is the author of the novel The Long Haul, and eleven books for children written under the pseudonyms AJ Stern and Fiona Rosenbloom.

Her most recent book is Little Panic: Dispatches From an Anxious Life, a memoir about growing up with an undiagnosed panic disorder in Greenwich Village in the 1970s and 80s.

As a mental health advocate, she serves on the advisory board for Glenn Close's Bring Change to Mind, and has worked in collaboration with Child Mind Institute, Lady Gaga's Born This Way and the JED Foundation.

Synopsis of Little Panic:

The world never made any sense to Amanda Stern.

Deep down, she knows there's something horribly wrong with her, some error that her siblings and friends don't have. Growing up in the 1970s and 80s in New York, Amanda experiences the magic and madness of life through the filter of unrelenting panic. 

Tenderly delivered and expertly structured, Amanda Stern's memoir is a document of the transformation of New York City and a deep, personal, and comedic account of the trials and errors of seeing life through a very unusual lens.

“I just watched the first video. It’s great—thanks for explaining why my kid is so obsessed with her various aches and pains.”

F.M. Mom of anxious 9-year-old girl

“It’s not just the well-digested information or the warm, funny delivery that makes Amanda Stern’s course essential; it’s the comfort that she offers parents of anxious [and otherwise neurodivergent] kids. We see the possibility of our children grown, thriving, and lighting the way for others.” 

S.M. Mom of anxious 11-year-old boy.

"The curtain of doom has been lifted. I've spent years trying to figure this out, but Amanda's workshop offered me an immediate understanding of anxiety that shifted my understanding. I no longer feel trapped. She is the real deal."

B.S. Mom of anxious 5-year-old girl
