CF Awareness Month Blog #14 - CF & Kids

Unfortunately, this blog doesn't really apply to me. I don't have any kids and my students don't know about my CF. I have always been curious how my family (aunts & uncles) have explained my CF to their children (my cousins). For those of you who have had to explain CF to a child, how have you done it?

Here's a cute, child-friendly video that explains the basics of CF to children.

  1. Obviously Kate isn't old enough to explain CF to her yet, but with my mom's triplets, it was a pretty natural part of their life for me to deal with CF. When they got older and started asking questions, I would give them answers with about as much information as their questions were after (if that makes sense) - I'd tell them that I was sick, that I needed to do my medicines and treatments to help me stay well, that when I went to the hospital it was because I had gotten sick and needed to get better, etc. I don't think anyone has ever sat down with them and explained "this is what CF is," but they've gradually learned more and more as they got older.
