To those with kids

I have a 12 year old daughter (who is very mature and intelligent for her age) and she is aware that I have some very serious problems but really doesn't know what they are beyond anxiety.
For those with kids.... Do you feel it safe and easy to explain DP to your kids? How have they reacted?
Should I show her the "definition" of DP from this site? It so clearly explains how I feel and I think my daughter would understand a bit better if (along with my help and further information) she could read the definition from the site.

I'm also in agreement with kchendrix. I have an adult daughter, who unfortunately can have anxiety and depressive moments. I've had dr since she was in her early teen and have never wanted to share the complexities of it all with her for the exact reason kchendrix gave. Unlike kchendrix, she definitely thinks I'm a fruitcake. If she only knew. :shock:

Best of luck to you and I hope you find what works best for you and your daughter.
