Considering sickness when you have children, can often create chaos. Especially when their system is already compromised. In our case, it's due to CF. In other cases, it could be anything. As everyone knows, the flu has seemed to create an epidemic. Lives have been lost, mostly in children.
It’s no secret that parents aren’t always completely honest with their children, whether to keep them sheltered from harsh realities or for their own wellbeing. Telling tall tales about mythical characters such as Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny, for example, can actually leave a positive impact on children. Those that eventually learn the truth, either on their own or from their parents, and choose to accept it, have realized that not having these characters around hasn’t led to negative consequences in their lives or the world as a whole.
