Top Do's and Don'ts for Parenting Children with Health Issues
 and Other Special Needs

This free audio is a recording of child psychiatrist Foster Cline MD's keynote lecture at the Cystic Fibrosis Research Inc’s 19th Annual Conference in San Francisco, CA.  

The information presented is essential for parents and caregivers of children with any health issue or special need. You will learn the answers to these questions and more: 

  • What is the one thing parents should never do when a child is resistant to medical treatments, medications or dietary restrictions?
  • What does parenting a child with special needs and leadership have in common?
  • How can parental love for a child make the situation worse?
  • How can parents raise children who are respectful, responsible and have high coping skills?
  • Why is it dangerous when a parent “needs to be needed"?
  • What is life’s biggest problem for a parent whose child has a special need?
  • How do kids really learn how to take good care of their bodies? Hint: It’s not nagging or lecturing…
