Description - It's OK to Be Sad by Margaret Collins

When a child faces a problem with health or disability we are quick to offer support or change our expectations. Sadness, distress, anxiety, whether transient or long-term, can have significant effects on every child but they are invisible and the support or adjustments might not be in place. In this great resource Margaret uses stories about 20 different life events to: illustrate the range of feelings give permission for the expression of feelings encourage empathy towards others demonstrate that loss is a common experience for us all. The work balances an acknowledgement of the need to express sorrow and sadness with an opportunity to consider how to do something positive for oneself or helpful to others.
