I do not have any children yet. I am the only one in my whole family with CD no one else has any signs of IBD. My mom does have IBS but that has lessened and she has not had an episode of that in at least 5 years now. I read in some research, I wish I could remember where but it stated tahat if only 1 parent has IBD that there is only a 5% chance that their child will have IBD. HOwever if both parents have IBD the risk goes up to 50% risk that the child will develop IBD
