Raising a family while living with a chronic condition, such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), can take a toll on your energy and pain levels. Trying to do it all — care for children, grocery shop, cook, and clean — is most likely more than you alone can accomplish. So why not have your children help around the house? Think of them as your part of your health team. Their help means less physical stress on your body and as a bonus: You’ll have more quality time to spend with them.
