Listen Up, Mom & Dad: 5 Things That All Parents Will Benefit From Hearing!

Hey, Mom and Dad! Here are five things you need to know!

  1. You are not alone. Parenting is a social activity that is shared within a family. As children experience challenges, don’t be afraid to reach out for assistance. 
  2. You aren’t perfect – and that’s OK! Kids don’t come with instruction manuals. Parenting requires trusting your instincts. Sometimes you’ll get it “wrong,” but you’ll learn from the experience. 
  3. You will be obligated to make heart-wrenching decisions. The essence of parenting is taking responsibility for the future; expect it to be hard. 
  4. Parenting a child with extra needs is like a marathon. The pace may be slower, the effort may be greater, but success comes from staying focused on the finish line. 
  5. Don’t lose yourself. In order to care for others, you must take care of yourself.

Congratulations on finding a treatment that has worked successfully. As an advocate, my advice is to keep seeking information until you find the "right" answer for you. Health and wellness is the foundation of everything and it is imperative that we begin by being healthy
