For Parents

Parents can be an active member of their child’s healthcare team

For Parents

You recently learned that your child has Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. Now you’re taking an important step: learning about these conditions, how they’re treated, and how your child can learn to live with IBD. 

The purpose of this website is to start you on an educational path—to inform you of some key points about Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and what you may expect. You won’t become an expert overnight, but gradually you’ll learn more. And the more you know, the better you’ll be able to become an advocate for your child. Most important: You’ll be an active member of your child’s healthcare team.
