The Lovereading4Kids comment

Tough Times is designed to help parents and carers to support very young children who are experiencing particular stress or anxiety. This book looks at what the child might be feeling at tricky times such as the arrival of a new brother or sister, moving house or simply feeling angry and offers guidance and lots of practical advice and support. The aim is to equip adults, working with troubled or distressed babies and young children, with an accessible resource to which they can quickly refer in times of need.
