Families and Pediatric Feeding Problems
Martorana, Pamela; Bove, Kelly; Scarcelli, Melissa
Exceptional Parent, v38 n10 p58-59 Oct 2008
When a child is born with a feeding and/or swallowing problem, it affects the entire family. Parents, mothers specifically, internalize the problem and come to believe it is due to something they've done. Families are put on an emotional rollercoaster with the ups and downs being dependant on how much the child has eaten that day. In this article, the authors present two stories that exemplify how difficult it is for the family of a child with a feeding and swallowing issue.
