A short piece by Áine - Kids With 22Q
Kids with 22q need to believe in themselves and they need to believe in their dreams, their goals. They need to believe that they can have a life like everyone else, get married, have kids and have a job. They need to believe in themselves. They need to believe that they can do well in school – they can go to college and get an education.
Parents need to believe in their kids, need to respect their kids. They need to accept the fact that their child has 22q or their child won’t be able to live their life. When the parent accepts it the child will too. Most number one thing to do – accept what you have. You do that and your life will change.
