Helping children cope when a parent has a chronic or life-threatening illness.
The impact of a parents serious illness on a child can be profound. It can affect their mental health, family functioning, school performance, friendships, growth and development, and overall adjustment. Typically, children in these situations are reported to experience behavioral changes, physical complaints, anxiety, decreased use of effective coping skills, and changes in sleeping and eating patterns.
Wonders & Worries counsels children in understanding the situation and handling these potential negative effects. We give parents the resources and support to help their family work through such a crisis.
All Wonders & Worries services are offered free of charge to people of any age, gender, socio-economic status and ethnicity and are available in English and Spanish.
