"My son struggles with separation anxiety, so I was excited to read this book with him. From the very first pages, he found the book appealing.... Reading this book made him feel hopeful and empowered. We both recommend it." --Tulsa Book Review

"Lavallee and Schneider bring together their collective wisdom in this interactive self-help book for parents and their young children who have separation concerns and anxiety. Separation anxiety prevents many children from enjoying their friends, families, and school. Using the metaphor of flying in a hot air balloon and based on their lifelong clinical research, they provide specific exercises and strategies based on established cognitive-behavioral principles for helping children overcome excessive separation anxiety. It clearly explains--in an engaging story format--the steps parents and children can take to overcome such anxieties and to lead a worry-free life. This is a practical 'what-to-do' book that will benefit many parents and their children. It is a book that will be welcome not only by parents but by clinicians who are looking for such materials to provide families." --Thomas H. Ollendick, PhD, Director Child Study Center, Virginia Tech

"What to Do When You Don't Want to Be Apart offers a nonjudgmental approach to getting a handle on kids' separation anxiety with the ultimate goal of leading a richer life." --Midwest Book Review
