What parents are saying"With so many formal test I've noticed my child has developed severe test anxiety. After my neighbor recommended this book, I have seen him become less stressed. His nervousness isn't completely gone, but he now can sleep the night before a test instead of getting sick to his stomach. I thank you and my son thank you.""My daughter is in the sixth grade and makes A's and B's mostly in her regular classwork, but she doesn't do as well on tests and always wakes up with a stomachache on the day of one. I didn't realize how much pressure I was putting on her when I thought I was cheering her on, but this activity book has helped her find the words to express how much we're adding to her anxiety. Thank you for creating this activity book that helps all of us.""My husband and I have tried to help our son study for his math tests, but we all just end up frustrated with each other. I was at my wit's end and his school counselor gave us Outsmart Test Anxiety and he has found ways to study without us making him. We are so relieved. Thank you for helping us restore some peace and patience."
