What is it about?

A small guidebook, suitable for children, that communicates expert knowledge in simple language on taboo and stressful issues such as bed soiling and bed-wetting, eczema, overweight children or mentally ill parents. The guides encourage self-reflection by posing questions and by using so-called "play-along pages". Each of the topics is handled in a way suitable for children and teenagers, parents and professionals, and turned into a subject that can be discussed. Each guide contains a story for reading aloud or alone, as well as separate sections designed for children/teens, parents and professionals.
