Nurturing Parents of Children with Special Needs

    Through Their Challenges and Unique Grief

Parenting a child with special needs is a hard job! People who have not walked in your shoes just do not understand the mental load of constant worry, keeping track of daily medical and developmental needs, ongoing stress, loads of appointments, marital challenges, chronic grief, overwhelming guilt, financial strain, and the list goes on. 

 

The biggest challenge of all of this is that it is never-ending. Depending on the abilities/disabilities of your child, most are going to need our care at some level well beyond young adulthood, unlike their typically developing peers. Just thinking of this is enough to send us running to hide under the covers some days!

 

So, how do you take care of yourself to endure this marathon of parenting? How do you ensure that you will always be able to be physically and mentally available for your family? 

 

You have to start by understanding that taking care of yourself is not selfish and is nothing to feel guilty about.  I want to help you learn how to truly make yourself a priority while running through the chaos of special needs parenting.

From the mouths of moms...

I appreciated the gentle approach with which Lara reminded me that loving myself enough to make time for myself matters in the grand scheme of being the best parent I can be.

I enjoyed hearing about simple ways to start caring for myself from a person who knows what it’s like to walk in my shoes.
