Laurie Zelinger on Book Bites for Kids

On February 16th, 2009, Suzanne Lieurance of Book Bites for Kids interviewed child psychologist, play therapist, and mom Laurie Zelinger about her new book for caregivers entitled The O, MY in Tonsillectomy and Adenoidectomy: How to Prepare Your Child for Surgery.
Dr Zelinger was inspired to write her book, The “O, MY” in TonsillectOMY & AdenoidectOMY: How to Prepare Your Child for Surgery, a Parent’s Manual, by her actual experience with her son’s tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy. She wrote it to help other parents and children benefit from her family’s experience.Dr. Zelinger’s concept of preparing a child for surgery is based upon the premise that information and preparation will reduce anxiety and help families to better manage the experience. She writes in simple language and provides scripts that parents can read to their children in order to explain the upcoming procedure.
