Explaining You
Illness to Your Child


If having a chronic illness is a part of your life than chances are it's pretty hard to hide from your child. And you shouldn't try to. Kids know when you are keeping something from them and they will have more fears, imagining what it is you are keeping from them.

Article: When Mommy is Sick

Below are some excellent books we've found to be helpful. Some books are for you to read to better understand what it is your child may need from you to feel safe and assured of your love and presence. Others are for the kids themselves. Reading through books that may be similar to your own experiences is a great way to make the situation less personal, and you may hear them asking questions about the books characters that they may not be able to ask you directly.

We look forward to providing you with more articles and resources soon. If you have something for us to consider, please let us know!
