Writing in a post shared with Mumsnet under the title JustLyra, the woman explained that her youngest child is clinically extremely vulnerable and has “many health issues” which means she is “unlikely to reach adulthood” and that the family had to be “Very anxious her whole life.”

Despite this, the mother said she always tried to find a “balance between protecting her, but making sure her siblings don’t live too limited lives.” Part of that has always been that any other parents looking to get their kids involved in the activities simply give them an ‘alert’ if there are any potential issues so they can ‘assess the risks’.
