I am the parent of a childhood cancer survivor and a physician. I have logged many an hour in the hospital both as a professional and as a parent. You would think that with all that schooling and on the job experience that being a parent of a hospitalized child would be a relative cake walk compared to the hospital naive adult. It turns out that is basically untrue. The only thing that being a doctor helps with is understanding the lingo and knowing your way to the cafeteria. The physical terrai ...more

This is a much-needed and informative book for all parents whose children spend time in the hospital, be it for cancer, a chronic illness, or psychiatric disorder. As a mom, I felt like a fish out of water and so helpless and frustrated when my daughter ended up spending weeks at the hospital as a teenager. I really could have used this book. It helps you understand what to expect, how to advocate for your child, how to help your child manage the stay, and so forth. It's a great book for parents ...more

I do not have now, nor ever have I had a sick child. In fact, I have yet to have a child at all. Still.. I would dare anyone to say that I have not been a 'parent' in every single way and in every small nuance to those two precious people that were responsible for my birth - and everything good that I am today. Having three doting sisters and a big brother my upbringing was nonetheless as an Only-Child, this due to the fact that I came twenty two years too late to join them before they had famil ...more

A wonderful, comprehensive, practical guide for parents facing their child's hospital stay.
In the moment, it can be impossible to even think of the right questions to ask, what to bring, how to prepare. This almost pocket-sized book is a brilliant resource for parents who could really use some help.
I hope you never need this information, but if you do, this is the book you need.

As someone studying to be a school psychologist, I feel this book would be helpful to both parents and other professionals who may work with kids in hospitals. It's written in a easy to read format (great for parents!), but it has enough detail to cover everything that parents may need to know. The book is well organized and a short read. I am definitely going to use this as a reference in the future when I work with parents of students who may need to go into the hospital for short or extended ...more
