Parental-MS impact on the child

Do children in families where one parent has MS differ in relationships with their parents and with peers?

A recent correlative study explored this issue.

Results indicated that these children report secure attachment with their parents but insecure attachment with their peers.

This is while children to healthy parents reported secure attachment with both parents and peers.

This difference was evident in several aspects: trust, communication, and feelings of alienation, and in the global score of attachment.

These should be further explored to better understand the nature of these differences and to develop relevant interventions.
