An interesting article on explaining polio and pps

Hi all, I have been trying to find a simple explanation of polio to tell my grandchildren as to why Grandma limps and walks with a crutch and has one regular leg and one little leg.

I know the info, but at a loss for a simple way of explaining it to them.

Any way, I've always told little ones the truth; that when I was little like them,I got a bad old disease and it made me that way. Kids always accepted that from me and I didn't have to feel bad about lying to them.
Hope this helps-------Phill

Hi Phil,

I was confused by your comment-"I got a bad old disease and it made me that way. Kids always accepted that from me and I didn't have to feel bad about lying to them."

I don't understand the "lying to them" part. The polio virus is simply that-a virus.

An interesting note that I've heard from many polio survivors is that parents of polio survivors denied anything ever happened to their children, making it quite difficult later in life to explain symptoms. I'd never heard of such a thing.

Anyway, I think this is a great site and I'm glad I found it.
How did everyone else find this board? I was researching other problems and just stumbled onto the polio board.
Glad I did.
