I posted a video of my 10-year-old daughter and I preparing my home IVS on an ordinary day (mostly because I was trying to share her adorable words in the caption), and was wondering: How do you guys feel about this?
I used to hide everything from my kids in the past. Now, I just hide anything that might cause them distress (you’ll never catch me moaning in pancreatitis pain around them), but try to empower them for the stuff that could feel routine if I don’t make a big deal out of it. In turn, it’s not really a big deal for them. Also, my youngest wants to be a doctor one day, so she is extremely bossy and elated to be involved, and have different “jobs” to do.
What is your tactic in handling medical supplies around your kids? Or, if you’re a parent of a child with CF, do you try to empower them in their own care?
