In brief: Emphasize normality

Depending upon the severity of the heart disease, there may be physical limitations.
Try to emphasize what they can do rather than what they cannot. Most children recognize their limitations and do not require reminders. They should be allowed to be children. They also require the same discipline that children without heart disease require.

Amen to that! If they have motor or other developmental issues, access early intervention & educational supports. Model good dietary habits.
