Australia, 1981

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Looks at some potentially stressful family situations for the child, such as the arrival of a baby, entry into a new school, and puberty. Indicates that, although stress is inevitable in children’s lives, once the causes are realised by parents, it can be utilised as a stepping stone towards emotional growth and family unity.
