Reviews for Book 2: ‘For You and Your Kids':

bloemetjes__ienieminiThis book series is unique because it meets all of the social aspects of someone life. For someone who has children in their life, whether they are maternal or not, it is the most difficult explain pain to them. Often there is no support or assistance with this area and how to help your little loved ones understand. This book helps you find the right words and exercises to break the silence and “dance” that we do around children. This is a must read.

bloemetjes__ienieminiTruly a great book for those in a family with children and chronic pain. The lack of techno-jargon was very welcome given the target audience of children. The advice for the adult in pain as to how to relate to the children of all ages was excellent! But when I got to the second part of the book with things to read to children of various age groups – wow! This book is well worth ten times the price. Very well done!

bloemetjes__ienieminiLiving in chronic pain is so difficult. Most people are sympathetic but cannot really understand what it is like to live this way. The authors are compassionate and make me feel as if somebody understands and cares. I would give this book to anybody I know that is struggling with a chronic illness. The support I feel when reading this book is better than any counselor I have ever talked too. Good book, recommended!

bloemetjes__ienieminiA well thought out book in offering excellent advice in dealing with chronic pain, especially when dealing with children. Very useful as I found several ideas that will be beneficial in the future. And yes, it is a team effort. There is a lot here and I recommend giving it a few reads to fully get the immense wealth of information within.
