Synopsis

'Parental anxiety is natural, but if you think something's wrong - trust your instincts. Talk to your child and seek professional help sooner, rather than later'. - Dr Sarah Vohra

How do you know what to worry about - and what not to worry about?
How do you keep the lines of communication open?
When - and how - should you seek professional help?

In Can We Talk? consultant child psychiatrist Dr Sarah Vohra shares an easy-to-use traffic light system that will help you to navigate tricky early conversations. Whether your child is 6 or 16, the expert advice and practical tools in this book cover such key concerns as sleep, low mood, anxiety and self-harm.

This updated edition also includes a new chapter on the impact of social media on your child's wellbeing, with strategies to help you support them in a world where Instagram and Snapchat multiply the pressure to be perfect at all levels and all times.

Whether your child is a preschooler or a teenager, this is an invaluable resource for anyone worried about a young person's mental health.
