Like "Hello my friend! I often find that children who have a parent with a chronic condition are more likely to learn how to take responsibility for themselves, to keep their rooms clean and their beds made. They get that their parents need them to be on board with keeping the house in order, and that their chores won't magically be taken care of for them. I also think that, in the process, they may .learn to be more compassionate, to recognize that their wants and needs don't always have to come first. They learn that we are all in this together. Thanks a lot! Gary "
