Today was a 'migraine day', raising for me the ongoing issue of parenting through the Migraine.
It makes for a difficult day, even if, as in this case, the migraine is a level 5/10 and reasonably short in duration.
My children are, well, typical children. Loving and caring and thoughtful, until they forget... and start being noisy and crazy and cranky. As a Mum who quite frequently is struck down with a migraine, I do feel sorry for my children, especially during the school holidays, when several days of boredom may follow each other while I am quiet and pained and grizzly.
I would love to hear from people how they cope and keep their children entertained while suffering from migraine, or any other temporarily debilitating illness.
Hope is always present however, in the form of raising empathetic and kind children. Perhaps having experienced chronic illness they will be more understanding adults when dealing with similarly afflicted people.
Or perhaps, like me, they will be so BORED with the ongoing problem they will have no patience with it at all!! Again, all parenting tips welcome!!
