How will your child re­act?

C.A.R.E. - - Every Journey Needs A Road Map -

Each child will re­act in dif­fer­ent ways and it’s com­mon for chil­dren to act less ma­ture when they are up­set.

Your chil­dren can’t al­ways tell you in words, but they will clearly show their feel­ings in how they act.

Ac­tiv­i­ties, such as us­ing pup­pets or paint­ing, are good ways for young chil­dren to ex­press their feel­ings. Older chil­dren might pre­fer writ­ing or drawing. If your child is show­ing ex­treme re­ac­tions, talk with your health­care providers about get­ting ex­tra help.

No mat­ter how old your child is, young or adult, can­cer raises the fear that you will leave them and their fam­ily. It’s im­por­tant to ad­dress this fear and let them know about any plans that have been made.
