Explaining dialysis to very young children?

Posted by chrisgoodhead Facebook

Hi - I'm Chris, a student renal social worker. I'm doing a project which involves explaining dialysis to very young children (aged about 5). It is for use when their parents are starting dialysis. I was thinking of writing a short illustrated story. I wonder if anybody here has had experience of explaining dialysis to little children - whether haemo or PD? If so could you share your explanations? What worked - what didn't - what they liked - any fears / anxieties. Anything that might help with writing the story.

Also looking for an illustrator / cartoonist, if you are interested or know anybody. This is a not for profit project and there's no funding in place, although I could request some if it became absolutely necessary. Thanks.
