Spreading Awareness

My purpose in writing this blog is to spread awareness and provide support to parents of children with and without special needs. I have one child with a Learning Disability, more specifically, a Visual Processing Disorder including Dysgraphia and another child with a disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis, an allergic white blood cell disease that attacks the esophagus.

Special Needs: 3 Emotions it's Okay for Moms to Feel | iMOM

First of all, I need to once again apologize for my lack of posts on this site.  For a year and a half I had agreed to a full time substitue teaching position.  Between that and parenting my two children with special needs, I literally had very little time for anything else, but to remember to breathe.  Because of this, I find the article that I am posting about even more relevent.

Below is an article, Special Needs: 3 Emotions it's Okay for Moms to Feel iMOM, from the blog iMOM that I feel is a must read for all parents with children of special needs.  We, as parents of these children, often expect more from ourselves than those of children without special needs.  As the article states, there is an added layer of complexity to being a parent of our children.  Please read the article to find out more about the 3 emotions we are ALLOWED, and have every right, to feel:  tired, discouraged and sad, but more importantly, some tips to help us through those emotions.
