Your child may only be 5 years old now, but soon he will be a big boy, and someday he will be a grown man. You can help your child set high goals for himself. He can grow up to be an independent adult. Help him see himself as capable, and have a realistic attitude about his blindness. Blind adults learn many skills. They work, get married, have children, and are good parents.
