Product description

Review

“Prepares parents to address children's fears with absolute honest and profound empathy.” ―Booklist

“Offers detailed guidance.” ―The New York Times

“McCue and Bonn should earn the gratitude of generations of young people for whom the tragedy of a parent's loss will be eased by this volume's sage advice.” ―Walter Cronkite

“Clearly written and richly researched, this book is a true how-to manual, exploring specific scenarios and offering step-by-step advice. It is sensitive to the needs of different age groups, family situations, and types of illness.” ―Connie Chung

About the Author

KATHLEEN MCCUE, M.A., C.C.L.S. pioneered the care and treatment of children stressed by a parent's grave illness in her renowned clinic and playroom at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. She then founded and continues to direct the children's program at The Gathering Place, a support center for families touched by cancer, in Cleveland.

How to Help Children Through a Parent's Serious Illness is based on her lifetime of experience in the field she helped create.

RON BONN, a three-time Emmy Award winning television journalist for CBS News and NBC News, now teaches journalism at the University of San Diego.
