Here at YBTC we're able to give you various resources, from guides to children's books, to help you navigate tricky conversations as a family.
Wanting to protect children from difficult news, worry and distress is completely natural.

You may feel it will bring home the reality of the situation, when you are still struggling to come to terms with it yourself. But not explaining what is happening may make them feel more vulnerable.
Children often know when something serious is affecting the family and people they are close to. It is important to give them the chance to talk openly about their worries and fears.

Here at YBTC we have a range of books and resources that may help you open up discussions:
If you think that one of these books might be helpful for your child, please get in touch with so we can arrange sending a copy to you, free of charge.

Did you know, you can purchase a book to help a child or young person going through a diagnosis themselves, or impacted by the diagnosis of a loved one? Just visit our Amazon Wishlist to pick a title to donate.
