    Indespensible for every family with an ill parent

    This thoughtful, outstanding book fills an empty niche for a practical, easy to read guide for families who are facing the crisis of a parent with a serious illness. No family is prepared for the myriad challenges and decisions they will have to make. While many families seek advice from friends and professionals about whether and how to share information with their children, this book anticipates every question and grounds the answers in a sophisticated understanding of child development. This book is a must for parents who want to feel confident about their parenting at a time they themselves are overwhelmed. This book is the ideal gift for any family you know who is facing such a crisis.
