OH , I"m so glad for this thread. Not for me, but for the parents of UC'ers. It must be soooooooo hard to be a parent and have to watch your child go through it. I can't (or don't even want to) imagine how hard it is....any support they can get is detrimental! So, in addition to the wonderful suggestions above, I'll add mine....I belong to this social networking site, http://www.wearecrohns.org
and its a GREAT site where I"ve connected with wonderful people and great ideas, and resources, but there is a community on that site that is called "My child has Crohns" I do know there are alot of UCers on the site...maybe check it out....Or you could start a new community called "my child has UC"....who knows....but thought it would be good to mention.... the community can be found at http://www.wearecrohns.org/child
