Being a parent of a kid with asthma can be scary at times. You know what is happening but it i still very frightening. Certain things in the environment can cause them to have a bad attack. When they have an attack their airways close up and cause them to have troubles breathing. When they do sports it can cause their breathing to mess up as well.
