ENDORSEMENTS FOR "Your Child's Well-Being - Juvenile Fibromyalgia'
"This book is a "must-read' for any parent of a child with widespread pain. We now know that a cluster of symptoms, such as pain, fatigue, mental fogginess, difficulty sleeping, anxiety, and depression, in any combination, are part of the fibromyalgia like syndrome. This book is easy to read and provides some important guides on how parents can help their child. I give it a strong recommendation!"— Lonnie Zeltzer, MD

"Having a child diagnosed with Juvenile Fibromyalgia sometimes can be a long and confusing journey and this book is a truly empathic guide that should give parents and caregivers a sense of empowerment and hope. Most importantly, the authors have put together an easy-to-read book which offers practical support and resources for parents to get the best care for their child and assist their child to achieve a well-balanced life despite their symptoms. I would recommend it as a must-read for parents of teens with JFM."— Susmita Kashikar-Zuck, PhD

"This is a great resource you've put together - well done! And thank you for including EFT/tapping as a tool that folks can use to help relieve both the physical and emotional discomfort faced by the children and the people who love them."—Brad Yates, Author of The Wizard's Wish
