Many parents have questions about the psychological effects that an eosinophilic disorder can have on their child. Here are answers, provided by the experts at the Cincinnati Center for Eosinophilic Disorders at Cincinnati Children’s, to some frequently asked questions.
My child is refusing to attend schoolChronic school refusal is typically a sign of a more significant psychological problem such as anxiety, depression, or difficulty with coping and adjustment. Many children with chronic medical conditions feel different from their peers and are unable to enjoy many of the activities offered at school (e.g., recess, lunch, after-school activities). In addition, children who have missed school due to medical appointments or hospitalizations fall behind academically compared to their peers. This may decrease a child's self-esteem and ability to cope with having a chronic illness.
