Parents’ attitudes & Children’s attitudes

1. You can have a big impact on how well your child deals with asthma by how well you deal with your child's asthma. Listen to your child. Support him or her. Say how proud you are of how well he or she is managing asthma.

2. We highly encourage how children are available to cognize what happen to them with Asthma and how children deal with their illness by themselves instead of other assistances.
