I wasn't as sure about this book as Pantley's books about sleep. I especially thought the magic bracelett being int eh back of the book sounded a bit silly. But, I read this anyway since it was short and her writing style is so easy to follow.

I found the information useful to have in the back of my mind for if Natalie or William develop separation or stranger anxiety beyond what we can easily control. Like her sleep books, Pantley gives many different ideas to try with your child based on the s

Another great addition to the "No-Cry" series, this book helps parents recognize that separation anxiety is common and normal for children at various ages and stages, and helps them decide what gentle, respectful steps to take to help ease a child's separation anxiety. I love that the book offers a balanced set of ideas that allows each family to choose the right mix of techniques for that family and the temperament and age of the particular child. It is wonderful how Pantley respects the close ...more

Another great Pantley book that we still reference. MANY of the tips we are still using.

They come in handy when Dad travels for business.

Pretty disappointed in this book. The whole basis is about a magic bracelet that you give to your child when you leave. The problem is that until they can understand what the bracelet is about, it doesn't help your child. There were a few good tips that I am trying but if anything, this book has made me think that maybe my child is normal and I am stressing about something that could be pretty normal behavior.

This book is largely geared toward younger kids, but there are still some helpful tips & ideas for parents of preschool age. The thing I love the most about Elizabeth Pantley is that she never talks down to her readers or treats us like we're stupid. She has practical advice in regular language. It just makes sense. Plus I love that she says that unless it's a problem for you, it doesn't need to be solved! YAY!

Probably works with smaller children really well but didn't find a lot of help for a 6 year old who has suddenly developed a severe separation anxiety. I liked the idea of a magic bracelet which unfortunately was dismissed by him for fear of being teased at school for wearing a bracelet - nothing we said could convince him otherwise. We are getting through it, little steps at the time...

My favorite point from this book, which applies to many parenting issues (and life issues) was that if somthing is not a problem to YOU, it's not a problem. The book had some great ideas to try out but also was very reassuring in explaining that separation anxiety is normal and is evidence of the bond between you and your child.
Jen
Some good and helpful tips, but lots of repetition. Seems this could have been a much shorter book or even a booklet Some care providers were skeptical of our 'new methods', but we have held steady to our path and our sweet one seems to be adjusting better.
May
quick read for the parts re my baby. will have to read more in the future. So far, so good and has some good ideas to try.
Carol
As L gets ready for nursery, hoping this will ease both our anxiety ... ELizabeth Pantley's books usually are kind and non judgey and feel like sound and helpful suggestions.
Jenna
Dissapointed in this book. No new ideas and seemed to be geared toward very young children despite saying it's for up to six year olds.
Julia
good for regular kids. Lots of ideas to help new parents. Not helpful for someone with anxiety disorder.
Nicky
This book had some great ideas but the author let us down by repeating herself.
Sarah
Some helpful ideas, but mostly not what I needed.
Julia
ok for standard kids, no help for serious anxiety
