How can I tell my kids that I have cancer?

Kid's Stuff

Nothing is more upsetting that being diagnosed with cancer while you still have young kids at home. How can you explain this complicated procedure so they can understand and not frighten them? Children are a lot more sophisticated than we sometimes give them credit. The best policy in telling your child that you?re sick is just that. Have an open, honest, heart-to-heart with them. Explain your cancer, talk about the procedures, and encourage them to ask questions and answer them.
