Can Family Support Help Children Cope with Asthma?
Children who have supportive families are more likely to have a healthy and positive outlook towards asthma treatment and life in general.
According to reports given by 126 adolescents from Northeast United States, aged between 13 and 20, suffering from asthma, a study was published in the Journal of Adolescent Health. The study concluded that family support helped improve asthma outcomes in adolescents.
A supportive and caring family can help change a child’s morbid thinking towards asthma due to repeated attacks and not being able to live a normal life. It can also help the child have a positive attitude towards asthma treatment and adherence to daily dose of medicine.
