Parenting Through the Storm
How to Handle the Highs, the Lows and Everything in BetweenBook - 2015
"Ann Douglas knows what it's like to parent a child diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Ditto with depression, anorexia, Asperger syndrome and ADHD. Each of her four children has struggled with one or more conditions that fall under the "children's mental health" umbrella. An honest and authoritative compendium of advice for parents who are living with children who have mental illnesses. It features interviews with experts on children's mental health as well as parents and young people who have lived with (or who are living with) mental illness. Drawing on her own experience and expertise, Ann shows how to cope with years of worry and frustration about a child's behaviour; how to effectively advocate for the child and work through treatments; how to manage siblings' concerns and emotions; and, most importantly, how to thrive as a family. Ann Douglas is the author of The mother of all parenting books : an all-Canadian guide to raising a happy, healthy child from preschool through the preteens. She lives in Peterborough, Ontario"--Provided by publisher.
