As Children Become Young Adults
As children grow into young adults there can be many questions that both the teen and their parents would like to ask. These can vary from issues to do with sexual health, to alcohol and smoking to piercings etc. We all want to know how a liver condition will affect these normal teenage issues.
There is a fantastic site for young people which covers many issues which arise. It is run by CLDF-a children’s liver charity in the UK. It is aimed directly at the young people.
There is also a section for parents and the issues that arise such as thoughts on going to school, supporting the child, and flying the nest.
They have information on line and also have leaflets that you can order covering all of the areas of interest.
There is also an app which can be downloaded. It included a social networking element.
