Editorial Reviews


“In simple, straightforward language, this book explains what depression is, how it’s treated, and prepares a child for working with a counselor. Research shows that if [children] understand their parents’ depression, [they] do better later in life. According to this excellent book, good communication within the family helps children develop healthy coping skills, and make positive choices in difficult situations. Encouraging children to start talking is one of the most important things you can do for them.”
