Hi, I'm new to this so bear with me. My son has had asthma for a couple of years now and never really needed any help with managing it as it wasn't very severe. Now he's getting older and his asthma seems to be triggered by everything. He knows excersize sets it off so he has to warm up and down properly and take his inhaler and he knows to stay away from other kids with colds 'cos that really sets him off, coughing all night etc. He's also getting more and more rebelious and doesn't always take his preventer inhaler. I'm trying not to nag him so that he sort of learns to take responsibility for his own asthma but it's having the opposite affect more often than not. Should I even be making him take responsibility for himself?
Any ideas as to how i can make him more careful and independent about his asthma?
