I was curious if you've struggled with treating your child differently than your others because of what they have or will go through?

Intresting. I havnt gotten there yet I only have one so far but it will be intresting to see what happends. I will probablby be more causious with her getting sick. She gets uprespitory infections every single time she gets any cold or flu..I like her to avoid getting sick at all costs.

even though I tell myself that I dont, I probably do. I bet my twins will have something to say about it when they are adults and they point out all of my parenting mistakes, lol.

but seriously, I do try hard to dicipline the same, or I should say fairly because every kid is differnt so we cant treat them all the same can we?

I think it is only natural to treat a child with health issues a little differently.
