Parenting in times of ill health
We all want to protect our children from pain and it is hard to realise
that we can’t always do so, or necessarily make it better. Being a
parent can be tough enough at the best of times but when your child or
another close family member is ill it takes things up another level.
Illness, whether mild or serious, disrupts family life both practically
and emotionally. However, with a bit of thought and preparation,
parents can play a big role in helping their children understand and
manage what’s going on.
