Supporting Children Who’ve Been Diagnosed with Chronic Illness

In this video blog, one of Australia’s favourite parenting authors – and mum of four boys – Maggie Dent talks about how to support our children when they are diagnosed with an illness they may have to live with for a lifetime. Maggie draws from her own experience of one of her sons being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was 17. Maggie talks about allowing yourself as a parent to grieve and then reassuring your children that you will be beside them throughout this challenging journey.
