Hi Kim! Accutane - i can definitely relate to the experiences of being on it and feeling as if it may not work. I'm a three time user and after my last course, i decided to try The Regimen which has been good for my skin in the mean time.
My advice to you is to take each day one step at a time. Accutane can take the full six months to work so don't give up yet. Having done it three times already, its my experience that each time takes longer to see results for whatever reason. As for the kiddies, do your best - i also teach kids (pre k) and they are indeed curious. The older ones in my experiences are better at being more diplomatic.
Good Luck hun, you'll get through this
