    I work in paeds onc. We tell all our parents, including parents going to transplant/BMT that their parenting style should not be altered by their child's diagnosis or treatment and that they should continue to enforce their usual limits and boundaries around their child's behaviour. Spending 3+ months in hospital with a child undergoing transplant, stuck in the one room with them, can be draining for these families and limit setting helps them cope during the experience and when their child is well enough to be discharged, or in remission. It also makes things easier and fairer on other children in the family.

    If the child is well enough to throw toys, the child is well enough to have limits set around appropriate behaviour.
