Resources - talking to children about cancer


Hi Parents,

We get asked a lot of questions here at Canteen about how to talk to your children about cancer and I wanted to direct your attention to a great (short) video that our lovely national community educator, Shae Chester, here at Canteen has developed.

Once on the video you will also have the chance to navigate to the community education YouTube channel that has a few other Canteen videos on topics such as:

  • Parenting through end of life and bereavement
  • Parenting during emerging adulthood
  • Parenting through illness - Covid-19 series

I hope you find them a useful starting point for thinking about parenting during these times - Canteen Counsellors!
