I have a 6yr old child who knows that mummy gets tired and has to rest a lot. She knows that I get dizzy and can't carry drinks and thinks my stick is cool ( it's pink, silver and sparkly). I was diagnosed in Oct 2012 but have had balance issues for a few years so she is aware that things are a bit different but I don't want to frighten her or make her worry. The school is arranging family support but that may take a while. People often ask if I'm ok when she is with me and I feel very awkward not knowing what to say. Does anyone have any child-friendly advice on what to say?
