Celiac Disease was in the local media this week, in the form of a Lifestyles article in the Salmon Arm Observer.
It appeared in the January 19th edition under the title “Helping Partners With Change“.
The article’s author grew up with a non-compliant Celiac father. She has a number of suggestions for anyone in a similar circumstance.
• Accept that you cannot change your loved one’s behavior.
• Encourage but don’t push.
• Stay positive.
• Be creative.
• Resist the urge to micromanage.
• Avoid making comments, discouraging looks or silent treatments.
