About the book

This accessible guide will help you to support your child through difficult experiences brought on by life changes, including divorce, new siblings, or the loss of a loved one

Change is part of life, but for a child it can be scary and bewildering. Whether it’s the prospect of starting school, dealing with changes in the family or seeing unsettling events in the wider world, there are many aspects of life that can cause a child to feel destabilized and frightened.

Help Your Child Cope with Change offers 101 actionable tips that will give you and your child the support you need to navigate these difficult moments with kindness and care.

Discover how to:

  • Nurture resilience and a positive mindset in your child
  • Break bad news to your child
  • Establish behaviour boundaries and retain routines during difficult times
