Nine stories explore common childhood anxieties and fears about such subjects as nightmares, new babies, going to the hospital, starting school, sickness, divorce, and death
Many of today's parents feel as helpless as a child when it comes to comforting their own children through the fears and crises that are a part of growing up. But Australian psychologist Doris Brett has developed a simple technique that all parents can use to help their children work through a problem or a crisis. Tell them a story. Not just any story-tell them ANNIE STORIES. ANNIE STORIES are special. They're not happily-ever-after fairy tales of make believe; they're stories that deal with the real-life emotions of common childhood anxieties and difficult situations, such as starting school for the first time.
