Abstract
"This book is designed to help you manage your pain so that you can get on with living a satisfying, fulfilling life. Chronic pain includes many types of conditions from a variety of causes. Despite these differences, all readers of this book have one very important thing in common ? you are living with pain every day. To help you discover strategies and skills that will make a difference, this book emphasizes four concepts:
"1. Each person with chronic pain is unique. There is no one treatment or approach that is right for everybody.
"2. There are a number of things you can do to feel better. These things will not eliminate pain, but they will help you to better manage pain, and help you to become more active and more involved in life.
"3. With knowledge and experimentation, you are the best judge of which self-management tools and techniques are best for you.
"4. The responsibility for managing your chronic pain day-to-day rests with you, not anybody else. Many people can be of help to you ? your family and friends, your health care team. But, in the end, the responsibility for self-management is yours.
"Acknowledging that overcoming chronic pain is a daily challenge, this book provides you with the self-management tools to help you meet that challenge"--from Publisher

Abstract
When children (under age 12) engage in sexual behaviours it is sometimes difficult to decide when the behaviour is natural and healthy, and when it may be an indication of some distress or disturbance. This booklet provides a definition of natural and healthy childhood sexual behaviours and then contrasts this with twenty characteristics of problematic sexual behaviors in young children. Charts describe children's "natural and healthy" sexual behaviors, behaviors "of concern" and those in need of professioal evaluation. Information is provided on how and where to look for help of an evaluation seems warranted. A continuum of chilldhood sexual behaviors, from natural and healty to children who sexually offend, is described.

Abstract
The author, whose own sons have Type I diabetes, begins with the shock of diagnosis and how to handle the basic day-to-day needs of a diabetic child. The author leads parents through grade school, junior high, high school (where hormone changes can affect blood sugar), and even college, where, she illustrates, a parent still may be called upon to deal with a diabetes-related situation. The book stresses the importance of always having food on hand, making teachers and friends aware of the child's condition, and continuing to be involved in the child's diabetes care as he or she grows up. Filled with personal stories this book is a must read, especially for parents dealing with a newly diagnosed child.
