How To Help The Shut-In Child: 313 Hints For Homebound Children



As the book is used, it will serve as a spark to ignite the imagination of the child and his family. Once the flame begins to burn brightly, new ideas will arise. The sick youngster will have a new countenance as he develops stimulating interests. He will no longer be apathetic or demanding, whining or self-pitying. Even his physical condition will improve in many instances because he is happy, busy, and has no time to brood. Finally, both the invalid and his family will share a greater joy when they realize that there are things which he can do well.
