Information for Families

About the Book Scheme for Children and Families

All families have questions or difficulties from time to time and there is a lot of evidence to say that using good quality self-help materials can be very effective at these times. This scheme can help you access books that provide such information and support. The books provide information on common themes and issues experienced by families such as:

  • Anger
  • Behaviours
  • Bereavement
  • Bullying
  • Confidence and Self Esteem
  • Development
  • Divorce
  • New Parents
  • Potty Training
  • Sadness
  • Sibling Rivalry
  • Sleep
  • Step Families
  • Teenagers
  • Worries and Fears

The self-help books selected for the scheme have been reviewed by professionals and local families who rated them as being both helpful and easy to use. Most of the books are for parents or carers and a few of them are for children or young people themselves.
