What is Still Important While You’re Sick?

  • June Jolly
Part of the The New Approaches to Care Series book series


This chapter is concerned not so much with the physical needs of sick children — food, warmth, fresh air, sleep — but with those other needs so important to their continued development, emotional and social well-being. Play, because of its priority in children’s eyes, is given a chapter of its own.
