Do your what-ifs have you worried?
A note from Dr. Josh + Christi Straub
Our kids are growing up in a very different world than we did. We wanted to put a tool in parents’ and caregivers’ hands to make talking about worry normal in your home, classroom, church, or wherever you serve kids and families.
In conceptualizing “What do I do with Worry?” and talking to our kids about their own worries, it became apparent how every worry we talked about started with the words “what if.”
In writing a children’s book, we want kids to pick up on concepts in a way that’s easy to understand. Worry can feel so subjective. It’s a feeling. It’s not easy talking about in a tangible way. But the words “what if” really began to help us in getting our own kids to talk about their worries.
