Abstract Asthma is the most common chronic lung disease diagnosed in children. The rising morbidity and mortality rate of asthma is a major concern to pediatric health care providers. Asthma education is essential for parents and children. Physiological, psychological, cognitive, and developmental concerns of each stage of growth have an impact on asthma symptoms, management, and daily life. An anticipatory-guidance framework allows the nurse to target education to age-specific issues, abilities, and needs.
