Passing the baton on eczema care from parent to child
When children are young, parents have to manage their eczema care, and it’s a role that usually lasts a decade or more. But when children reach adolescence, parents must hand over the reins and learn to let go. In this episode we explore some pitfalls with this sometimes-tumultuous period as well as tips and best practices for navigating it with patience and skill. We examine the issues from the perspectives of both parents and young people. Our guest, Dr. Miriam Santer, studies this topic at University of Southampton. Tune in to learn more.
