What do you do to relax?
What else would you like to tell us about yourself?
I am having a really hard time. Parenting a spicy neurodivergent kid is a hard life. I love my kids so much but his behavior has isolated me and I just want us both to enjoy life.
What benefits has Connecting for Kids brought to you and your family?
Connecting for kids has provided a non-biased community of people who are not only like-minded, but share similar experiences in either the same stages or previous stages of life. The resources that this group provides both personally and professionally have been amazing thus far.
Which have been your favorite Connecting for Kids resources?
I really enjoyed the Share & Support adult support group sessions, where we could just share our experiences and bounce off of one another as to what’s going on in our lives, and how we can help one another
What I worry about most…
That my son won’t learn to self-regulate his emotions and struggle his whole life.
When my child's behavior gets out of control, I feel...
Like an absolute failure. Although I know in my heart that I’m doing the very best I can for the both of us it’s still so defeating when these uncontrollable meltdowns happen.
The most difficult part of parenting a child who struggles...
Having to explain to others. It hurts me and my soul having to explain or justify his behaviors to others when I know that he truly is a sweet boy and he’s just trying so hard to figure himself out.
Do you have any recommended resources such as blogs, websites, or books that we can share?
No I look to Connecting for Kids for all the answers ❤
