Author: Abha Adams
Publisher: Aleph Book Company
Parenting in the Age of Anxiety is a must-read book in the present times when the smallest of problems can lead to depression, anxiety and further initiate mental breakdown among children. Caught in the whirlpool of unnecessary expectations, fear of judgement, unethical competition of beauty and looks and demanding notions of society, the children of today do not sleep on a bed of roses for sure. Hence, how they are treated at home and how their problems are responded to determine how they conduct themselves. The reactions of the parents decide their children’s self-worth now. Knowing that parenting is a tough cookie to crack, guidance at some point becomes imperative.
This book clearly establishes that the task of parenting is a lifelong one and it includes dealing with teenagers, who, at one point, lose their innocence and backtalk, making it impossible to counsel them right. Hence, talking to them with empathy, building trust and mending broken bonds have become every parent’s must-dos. Covering how to deal with tweens, recognition of their abilities and bidding farewell to unimportant expectations and the importance of open communication, this book elaborates on all these issues and encourages parents to talk and discuss mental health in children. Hence, it proves to be a vital read.
