Im hoping that someone can offer words of wisdom on how to tell our children. Our daughters are aged 11 and 7 and I have an appointment in the UK with a Neurologist in a couple of weeks. I feel I need to explain why Mummy and Daddy are going away for the day and my left arm has decided it will shake when trying to do certain tasks and they have noticed.
My thoughts on telling them is to keep it fairly light. With eldest having access to the Internet I’m worried she will Google condition and scare herself so I was thinking of maybe avoiding naming condition. Then I thought I’m overprotecting and if she comes across something we could discuss it.
Anyone have any thoughts or perhaps been here themselves?
