Hi I am new here. I have a step-son with CF and we (his parents) are having a horrible time getting him to do his treatments. Any suggestions? cfstepmom

Hmm... I'm not a parent, but I wonder if you could treat it like homework? If he doesn't do his treatment, he can't go out with friends, or whatever the punishment may be. Just an idea. Good luck!

I didn't do my treatments either. Just give it time and don't bug him about it. He will start feeling like crud and take charge himself at some point. he has probably convinced himself they don't work or there's no point or he "forgot." So the more he gets told to do them the more he's going to keep up with those excuses and he will start believing his own reasons. Good luck!
