Withholding information I'm curios what people here think about withholding information from their children. The hypothetical: a child that is adopted. At what point do you tell them, if at all? The real situation: my daughter has a condition known as dandy-walker variant. Luckily she has a mild form of it, with only minimal impairment of motor control. She has noticed though that her friends are better at sports than her, and was upset about it. It's difficult to balance wanting to be open with your children, but not wanting them to see themselves as "different" from their friends. Thoughts?
