If there is one thing obvious about books that deal with the topics of chronic pain it’s that their titles are super long. Today we’re going to talk about a book called Conquering Your Child’s Chronic Pain: A Pediatrician’s Guide for Reclaiming a Normal Childhood. It’s a bit different topic that the book takes a look at because it talks about how parents of kids who suffer from chronic pain should help their kids deal with this condition.
Conquering Your Child’s Chronic Pain: A Pediatrician’s Guide for Reclaiming a Normal Childhood
So yeah, long book title aside, this is a great resource for all those who are parents of kids that are suffering from one of the many chronic syndromes that unfortunately exist out there. Many members of CSSA are parents, but luckily only a few of them are members of CSSA because they have a kid that suffers from a chronic syndrome. I’m saying lucky because you wouldn’t want kids being affected by these conditions.
This book is written by a Lonnie Zeltzer and Christina Blackett Schlank. Is has some great insight how to explain to kids why they are affected with chronic pain, if they have fibromyalgia, for example. There’s advice on how to deal with chronic pain both psychologically as well as physically, which is why I love the book. I’m not a parent myself, but I still got some great tips for dealing with pain. Parents, if you have a kid that’s suffering from chronic pain, this is the book for you. CSSA recommends it.
