TIMELY CONVERSATIONS - Dr. ABIGAIL GEWIRTZ
An urgent and necessary book, When the World Feels Like a
Scary Place brings solutions to a problem that is only going to
get worsehow bad things happening in the world affect our
children, and how we can raise engaged and confident kids in
spite of them.
Dr. Abigail Gewirtz offers a clear and truly practical guide to
having the kind of tough conversations with your kids that real-
ly help, including how to talk about COVID-19. The heart of the
book is a series of conversation scripts, with actual dialogue,
talking points, prompts, and insightful asides, each tailored for
different ages. She shows how to let the child lead. How to not
make the problem worse by saying more than a child needs to
know. How to check in with yourself to make sure your own
anxiety doesnt colour the conversation.
Dr. ABIGAIL GEWIRTZ is a child psychologist and a leading ex-
pert on families under stress. She is a professor in the Univer-
sity of Minnesotas College of Education and Human Develop-
ment and has been invited to speak widely, in the U.S. and
across the world, on parenting in times of stress.
