No Scaredy Cats

No Scaredy Cats™ program assists parents to reduce anxiety and build resilience in children

The No Scaredy Cats program is based on three underlying principles; first, by having an understanding of how anxiety develops parents can counter its progress. Second, parents can play a preventative role in the aetiology of children worrying too much. Third, there are practical steps parents can take to build resilience thinking.

Parentshop is currently developing the No Scaredy Cats parents online course reducing anxiety and building resilience in children aged 2-12 years. This program will assist parents to gain a greater understanding of the problems of increasing levels of anxiety in children and some strategies for its treatment.​
