Toby, Toby, Worry Free

Dr. Cindy has written a children’s book, demonstrating a lesson for children with anxiety along with a guide for parents to help their child through tough times like these.

When Toby is faced with learning to ride his bike so he can play with his friends, he begins to worry and worry and worry.

“What if I fall?”

“What if the other kids laugh at me?”

“What if I can’t ride my bike?!”

Mommy pauses, attuning to his behavior. She accepts his emotions and calmly engages with him, encouraging his discovery of positive steps to solve this dilemma.

Toby learns a better way to manage his feelings by using his can do thoughts. Now, he can have fun!
