Overview

Winner of a Mom's Choice Awards Gold Medal, Jan Stewart describes her raw and emotional journey raising two children with multiple mental health disorders. It's a roller coaster of emotions, from the time they were born to the present as young adults in their 30s. Pulling no punches, Jan describes moments of terrifying fear, pain, and hopelessness, as well as of awe, pride, and hope. While brutally honest, Hold on Tight is a love song to Jan’s children. The book educates and empowers parents so that both they and their children can lead more fulfilling lives. Her compelling parental advice includes: • Trust your gut. • Persevere in identifying the right professionals, diagnoses, and treatments. • Insist on an integrated partnership approach with all those involved in each child’s care. *And never give up.
