    Hi everyone,

    My daughter is 9-years-old and was diagnosed with scoliosis this past summer. She just got fit with her brace last month and some of the kids at school are giving her a hard time about it. She has come home crying a few times and it just breaks my heart. I told her not to listen to the other kids, but I don’t know what else to do. Any other parents have experience with this??

    Thanks,
    Sandy

    Hi Sandy,

    My daughter is 11, but had a similar situation last school year. I ended up going and talking to her teacher about it. We decided it would be best if she just told the whole class.

    It ended up working! She did a show-and-tell presentation about scoliosis and about her brace and some kids even tried on her brace to see what it felt like. I think it gave them a better understanding about why she is having to wear the brace and it let them ask questions in a controlled environment. This was all last February and she hasn’t had any issues since.

    Hope it helps,
    Lisa
