reports, and wire, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

The most recent release of Starz Home Entertainment's "Eloise" animated series, "Eloise in Springtime," returns the classic best- selling children's book character to the screen.

Celebrity voiceovers for the DVD include Tim Curry, Lynn Redgrave and Neil Patrick Harris.

In this story, while Nanny goes on a vacation, Eloise gets a temporary nanny -- the young, hip, Nicole -- who shows Eloise an artsy side of New York City. When she gets friendly with Eloise's favorite Plaza employee, Bill, Eloise gets jealous and tries to break up the romance. The DVD, which sells for $14.98, also includes coloring pages and a Spanish language track.

The child of an anxious parent is three times to seven times more likely to develop an anxiety disorder than the child of a parent who isn't anxious, reported L. Kevin Chapman, co-director of the Healthy Parents-Healthy Kids Research Center at the University of Louisville in Louisville, Ky.

While anxiety disorders are rampant in our society -- 17 percent of the population is afflicted -- treatment can make a big difference.

"With anxiety disorders, cognitive-behavioral therapy absolutely works. People who stay in treatment get better and get better fast," Chapman says.
