No Cry Separation Anxiety Solution Book Series - A Review & Giveaway

The No-Cry Separation Anxiety Solution
Gentle Ways to Make Good-bye Easy from Six Months to Six Years by Elizabeth Pantley

Last week I received a book by Elizabeth Pantley entitled No Cry Separation Anxiety Solution. Thankfully my children never went through a separation anxiety when they were babies. My son did have a few months around the time he was going on 4 when he didn't want me to leave him at his preschool. It was odd, because he had been there the year before with no problem. We eventually worked on a visual chart that helped him a lot.


A tear-free approach to child separation blues—from the bestselling No Cry author a generation of parents have come to trust.

Almost every child suffers some sort of anxiety during their first six years of life. Babies cry when grandparents hold them, toddlers cling to mommy’s leg, children weep when their parent leaves them at daycare, at school, or to go to work. This can cause frustration, sadness and stress in an already too-busy day and can break a parent’s heart.

Trusted parenting author Elizabeth Pantley brings you another winning no-cry formula that helps you solve these common separation issues. Pantley helps you identify the source of anxiety and offers simple but proven solutions.

In this exciting addition to the series, she ingeniously includes a free “magic” bracelet inside the book as a special tool for children to feel close to their parents—even when they’re not together. This successful method gives anxious children something to remind them their parents aren’t too far away—instantly providing them with the comfort and reassurance they need

What I Can Tell You: Elizabeth writes with the child and parent well being in mind. As parents, we have one time or another, had to leave our child for a long or short period of time only to have our hearts broken as the child cried. The child clings to you and even if you NEED to leave, the guilt forces you to push the moment aside so you can go about your day. What Elizabeth does with The No Cry book is help parents create a comfortable, easy process for parent/child separation.

Her easy methods are stress free for you and less damaging for the child.

She discusses Separation anxiety and possible causes. Stranger anxiety which in my book isn't always a bad thing. Solutions for school age children which is a group that is sometimes ignored in the baby books when it comes to separation.  There is even a section on separation anxiety in the home. Some parents can't even leave the room that their child is in without a child breaking down.

I believe that no matter what the issue is, Elizabeth Pantley has a solution for it. With simple tips and sound advice, you and your child will have an easier time with separation.

The book even comes with a "magical bracelet" that comes with the book. When my son was going through separation anxiety in preschool I used my watch, putting it on his arm telling him that when the hands were on 11 and 6 I would be back to pick him up. I strapped it to his little wrist and it helped ease the stress because he knew it was mine.

The No-Cry Separation Anxiety Solution is a book that every caregiver of children should have. Whether you deal with babies, toddlers or grade school kids, this book is a great resource.
