Editorial Reviews

Educasiacorp.com - Gene Standford
“Parents, of course, should be partners in the preparation process, receiving explanations themselves and assisting in preparation of their children… By providing parents material to discuss with their children, the hospital personnel spares parents the discomfort of not knowing how to talk to their children about upcoming events.
By providing information and emotional support to parents, hospital personnel can reduce parental anxiety, thereby indirectly benefiting the children
