Father of an eight-year-old child with haemophilia:
Parents must treat the condition as a team, as with any other difficulty involved in bringing up a child. We take into account our child’s haemophilia, just like all the other daily problems that go with having children.
Father of a nine-year-old with haemophilia:
For us parents, a special difficulty associated with the disease comes up regularly: How can we give our child self-confidence while still keeping him alert to the risks of many physical activities?
Father of a nine-year-old child with haemophilia:
Sure, there’ll be hard times, for them and for you, too. But keep a level head, don’t wrap your child in cotton wool. You have to live and talk normally.
Father of a seven-year-old child with haemophilia:
We have always dealt with the haemophilia together. We have thought from the beginning that our son’s condition is a part of our family life, just in the same way as our first child, who doesn't have haemophilia.
