Parents of children with chronic illnesses may find it difficult to discuss the realities of their child’s condition, but an open dialogue may be the most important step to managing anxiety. Make it a point to ask your child how he or she feels each day and emphasize accomplishments made in spite of any physical or medial limitations. In addition, before doctor’s appointments, hospital stays or procedures, inform your child about what to expect or have a conversation together with other children who have had similar experiences.
