“My seven year-old Dylan was experiencing significant separation anxiety in childrenand was refusing to go to school, among other things. I found your program online and now life is better for the whole family. Dylan’s sleep has improved and he’s back at school! The program was what we needed.”
My son Jacob started experiencing separation anxiety in children after the unexpected death of his Grandfather. When the anxiety started affecting him at school, I started doing research and discovered the Anxiety Free Child Program and decided to try it with Jacob. After we started working with him with what the program teaches, we started to see a change very quickly. Now his fear has faded, he jumps into the car everyday ready to go to school, and he’s back to playing soccer like a rock star! He’s so much happier now and doing great thanks to the program.”

“I’m a mental health professional and I ordered the program for my five year-old granddaughter who had a very hard time being away from her mother. We started to see improvements after about the first week, and now she’s back to her normal self, a happy go lucky child! The program was simple and easy to use and didn’t require long, drawn out, expensive therapy sessions. The entire family is happy to have our carefree child back!”
“I was exhausted from desperately trying for 8 years to help my son. He was making himself sick with worry and had even begun having separation anxiety in children. It was tremendously stressful for the entire family and created an extremely negative environment for us all. He hated school and would beg for help and to “escape” situations. I found the program online and within a couple of weeks he was able to prevent himself from having panic attacks. Now he seems more comfortable to be himself and he isn’t negative about life and watching from the sidelines…he gets in there! Now he knows he can handle it, it’s FREEDOM and he has a whole new world waiting to be discovered. I would definitely recommend the program, it gave me the power to change things.”

Now you know that the way to overcoming your child’s separation anxiety is to first stop the cycle of anxiety from occurring and then to change the old limiting neural pathways of anxiety, worry, and fear, and replace them with new habits of confidence and calm.
The problem is that all of this occurs on a very deep, primitive, and emotional level, and is why I believe so many programs and therapies for separation anxiety in children fail. They attempt to correct an emotional, automatic, and instinctual problem on a logical level…how could that work?
Traditional talk therapy often attempts to “explain” to your child why they don’t need to be anxious. Let me ask you, do you think your child is CHOOSING to be afraid? Do you think you just need someone to TELL THEM they’ll be fine and to stop worrying? Haven’t you already done that? Did it help?
I didn’t think so.
Like you learned, once it starts, your child’s fear is virtually out of their control. Logical explanations and talking it over won’t stop their anxiety any more than they can talk themselves out of a headache.
Medications and pills can be helpful in controlling the SYMPTOMS of your child’s anxiety, but they often don’t do ANYTHING to address the underlying CAUSE of the problem, so when they stop the medication, the separation anxiety in children can return as powerful as ever and they feel even more hopeless. Not to mention the dangerous side effects and risks associated with medicating your child…
Your child needs to learn to stop their anxiety BEFORE it starts and develop a NEW WAY of responding – permanently.
