Talking to your child and others about his/her cardiac condition.

Book a place NOW for the November Parenting Group in Dublin.

 

How do you answer your child’s questions about his/her heart health?

How do you support your child to deal with classmates’ queries about medications, hospital visits and health-related physical challenges?

How do you balance the needs of everyone in the family when you are supporting a child with a cardiac condition?

What tips have other parents when it comes to dealing with such questions?

 

 

About these meetings
In recent years, Dr. Deirdre O’Neill, Clinical Psychologist, has run a number of small, parenting groups for members to talk about these matters. Deirdre, who previously worked on the cardiology team at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, provides lots of practical and psychological information. Attendees have had preschool or primary school aged children with cardiac conditions. Members have enjoyed these meetings and the feedback has been extremely positive!
