“Karen Glistrup’s book is a long overdue tool to breaking the silence about feelings in the interaction between children and adults. It is in childhood that the emotional fear of contact is founded.
‘Talk about it ...’ is the way forward towards more openness and emotional health.”
Jes Gerlach, Chief physician, Founder of The Danish Mental Health Fund
”Thank you very much for writing the book ’talk about it...with every child.’ I am an adult with mental illness but when I read the book I felt the child in me who grew up with parents who had untreated mental health challenges was being acknowledged by someone. Now I am a parent who is trying my best to be a good parent and manage my own mental illness. I appreciated how you approached this challenging but important topic.”
