Re: Kindergartner with PWS...help.
I don't need to add anything more then what was said... My daughter is 16 and grew up with a large H on her nose..no treatment at all until she was 11..
so, I understand fully what you are fearing.. but the part about " feeling her pain and trying to spare her"..I know we all feel that and worry about that..but,,the most important thing I think our children learn,,and a very valuable future lesson in life is..
THEY LEARN COPING SKILLS....... at a very young age..and we as adults know how important it is to know how to cope when things don't go the way you want them to..All children need to know how to cope,,and all children will be "teased" for something,,,
We talk to our children and we explain to them skills and life lessons earlier then most parents,,this is our fear for them,,but in the long run ..our kids become more patient, more understanding and more sensitive to life challeneges,,and I belive this is a GOOD THING!!
You and your daughter will be fine as long as the communication, love, trust and acceptance is all brought out in the open..
