Peterborough-based parenting author/writer Ann Douglas has a new book coming out January 27th, Parenting Through the Storm, a definitive guide to parenting a child with a mental health, neurodevelopmental, or behavioural challenge.
The bestselling author knows what it's like to parent a child diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Ditto with depression, anorexia, Asperger syndrome and ADHD. Each of her four children has struggled with one or more conditions that fall under the "children's mental health" umbrella.
Ann's book is an honest and authoritative compendium of advice for parents who are living with children who have mental illnesses, featuring interviews with experts on children's mental health as well as parents and young people who have lived with (or who are living with) mental illness.
