Children with Special Needs
Over the years, I have found that there are a number of parents of children with special needs who REMAIN in denial, while children move through the ages and stages without proper support. Parents don’t help them attain the necessary skills they require to function to the best of their ability.
It is very hard to accept that your child is EXCEPTIONAL. However, it does not mean that there is NO HOPE. Your child still has abilities; IT IS NOT ABOUT THE PARENTS, IT IS REALLY ABOUT THE CHILD. Every child has the right to be helped and encouraged to be THE BEST THEY CAN BE IN THEIR OWN EXCEPTIONAL WAY.
Parents of EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN are exceptional themselves in a very special way. It takes special kind of parents to cope with responsibilities, provide support, and deal with the various demands of life and the family while helping the child. It is nothing to be embarrassed about, seek help and support. As parents, you are not alone though it feels that way, utilize the help and support around you and reach out for it if you have to. Your child needs you and you need support.
