Challenging: It can be quite challenging being the parent of bipolar children. It is best to educate yourself about the illness (even medications). Finding extra support, such as through support groups can be beneficial. Nami is a good resource that can help with both. Both parents should also be consistent with their parenting. It is a team approach.
