Hi Heather and welcome to Healingwell's Crohns forum. I am glad you have found us. We have a few parents of young folks with Crohns on this forum. I will caution you though, that many on this forum are more severe cases, so not all you will read happens to each Crohnnie. I also wanted to let you know about
another website that is for parents of young folks with Crohns. I have attached a link below for you, as you might want to check that one out too. Good luck and I look forward to hearing more from you.http://www.dragonpack.com/ibdsupport/parents/
