Hair Loss In Children

Oct 22, 2007
Hair loss is very stressful for children and their parents. Children can be insensitive when it comes to their peers and especially about such things as baldness. Children suffering from hair loss often are the subject of ridicule from their friends and classmates which can lead the child to feel ostracized or to isolate from others. Parents of children suffering from hair loss whether caused by medication or any other reason need to look for ways in which to help their child cope with the situation. Often times, the parents must start with their own issues surrounding the problem. If the parents cannot deal with the issue, then the child will be less apt to cope with it in a healthy manner.

The healthiest way to help you child cope with hair loss is to encourage them to talk about their feelings. BY discussing their feelings surrounding the entire situation, the easier it will be for them to come to understand and come to terms with the hair loss. It is especially important for them to feel free to discuss their fears and concerns about the hair loss as well as coping techniques.

Sensitivity is the key element for parents with children coping with hair loss. Rather than forcing your child to join their peers it is important to ask him or what they want to do. If they have not had time to adjust to the situation be patient. Remind them that the hair will grow back and discuss possible options. It may be appropriate to purchase a wig or toupee to be worn when outside the home. Some children may be fine with a few hats and this can be a way for him or her to express them self as well.

Returning to school can be especially stressful for a child suffering from hair loss. If your child is overly concerned or afraid about returning to classes after suffering fair loss, it might be advisable to meet with the teachers before hand. Ask them to speak with the rest of the children and explain the situation to the class. Often times this will lessen any teasing your child may receive. Just as children an be cruel, they can also be extremely understanding and supportive once situations are explained and they have a chance to become accustomed to the changes.
