With anxiety at epidemic levels among our children, Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents offers a contrarian yet effective approach to help children and teens push through their fears, worries, and phobias to ultimately become more resilient, independent, and happy. How do you manage a child who gets stomachaches every school morning, who refuses after-school activities, or who is trapped in the bathroom with compulsive washing? Children like these put a palpable strain on frustrated, helpless parents and teachers. And there is no escaping the problem: One in every five kids suffers from a diagnosable anxiety disorder. Unfortunately, when parents or professionals offer help in traditional ways, they unknowingly reinforce a child's worry and avoidance. From their success with hundreds of organizations, schools, and families, Reid Wilson, PhD, and Lynn Lyons, LICSW, share their unconventional approach of stepping into uncertainty in a way that is currently unfamiliar but infinitely successful. Using current research and contemporary examples, the book exposes the most common anxiety-enhancing patterns—including reassurance, accommodation, avoidance, and poor problem solving—and offers a concrete plan with 7 key principles that foster change. And, since new research reveals how anxious parents typically make for anxious children, the book offers exercises and techniques to change both the children's and the parental patterns of thinking and behaving. This book challenges our basic instincts about how to help fearful kids and will serve as the antidote for an anxious nation of kids and their parents.

Despite the amazing strides made in information technology, communication processes are predominantly initiated and managed by humans for humans. This underscores the idea that it is the target of the process that is the center of all communication activities. The process fundamentally involves seeking answers to the cardinal questions of what to communicate, how to communicate it, when to do so and why. Many books and manuals have attempted to address some of these questions but not much attention has been directed at a systematic analysis of audiences before, during and after communication encounters. Many books also do not address audience classification, universals of audiences, special types of audiences and levels of audience analysis. This book addresses this and suggests that in order to do a good job in this part, it is necessary to view communication as skilled behavior, in view of this, the author has suggested some reflective activities at the and of each section. It is hoped that this activities generate more questions, debate and shit more attention to audiences as centers of all communication. There is a preface to the book outlining the importance of analyzing audiences. Chapter one looks at the generic aspects of audiences: categories of audiences, index of similarity /sameness, conception of effective communication, universal properties of audiences, special types of audiences and message classification. Chapter two addresses pertinent questions in audience analysis and chapter three looks at the levels of audience analysis. At the end of the book, the author has provided a list of terms as used in the text. The book is intended to meet the needs of diverse professionals in that all communicators have to deals with audiences on a day-to-day basis. The section on special audiences recognizes the fact that although there are many common factors in audiences, there are some special audiences whose features may call upon communicators to look more into the circumstances.

A couple of years ago I started to keep a spiritual journal, which I wrote as daily letters to God. Each letter contains my thoughts of all the events, which have occurred in my life. As a result I feel closer to God each day. Because I feel that each of us is on our own, personal, individual spiritual road, I decided to publish and share these letters.
