If, when and how?
I would like to hear from other HSP members, on their approach to informing children concerning HSP. I understand that for those parents with obvious symptoms, children may know about the implications to them at a earlier age. In comparison, for those with a HSP diagnosis who show only minor symptoms that may not be detected by children, the question remains as the appropriate time and age to inform children. I am talking about the dominant form of HSP, where children would have a 50% chance of inheritance.
Is informing a child who is 15 or 17 for example something that others recommend? What about a child’s mental health, or decisions regarding their future?
I am interested to hear feedback from other HSP diagnosed individuals.
