Paperback - 0812015630 [NAVARRA, TOVA] ON MY OWN: HELPING KIDS HELP THEMSELVES
The author, a Registered Nurse who specializes in children's health, wrote this book mainly for "latchkey" kids and their parents. However, her advice has proven valuable for all kinds of families. She helps youngsters deal with large and small problems -- from what to do if a fire starts and parents are at work, to how to cope with nightmares, failing a test, or losing a game. Information is presented so parents and kids can review the details together. Full-color illustrations throughout.
