The Elementary Years and Your Child with CF  

The elementary school years are perhaps the golden years of parenting! Parenting can seem deceptively simple because children this age want to please the adults in their lives. But it won't be long before children become teenagers and everything will change. 

Over forty years of research shows that parenting style strongly impacts how children "turn out" as teenagers and adults. When a child has CF, this is even more important than for the average child. Discover the parenting "Do's" and "Don'ts" for this stage of your CF child's life.
