How to Help Children Through a Parent’s Serious Illness


Offering supportive, practical advice from a leading child-life specialist, this book includes information such as what to tell a child about the illness, how to recognize early-warning signs that the child is not coping in their drawings, sleep patterns, schoolwork and eating habits, and when and where to get professional help.
One strong message is that children need to be included in the experience when someone in the family has a serious illness. The alternative of keeping them away from knowledge of what is going on, in order to protect them, will often cause them to think that something is wrong with them or that they are to blame for the illness. In fact, children will often handle sensitive situations more easily than adults.
This book is an excellent guide for families.
