Lisa is from North Royalton and has a son.
What do you do to relax?
We listen to music or try to get his mind off what he is frustrated with. We also go swimming and take walks outside, sometimes in the Metroparks, to unwind and relax. Nature always has a way of helping us both to open our eyes, breathe and take it all in looking at God's beauty.
What else would you like to tell us about yourself?
We are glad there is a community such as Connecting for Kids that we can feel a part of and share our concerns as well as our victories with our little blessings from above.
What benefits has Connecting for Kids brought to you and your family?
The Music Therapy & More class has benefited my son because it has given us a way to bond through music.
Which have been your favorite Connecting for Kids resources?
I like the podcasts, the music therapy classes and the Speaker Series.
My greatest lesson learned was...
Even though my child may struggle a bit more than other kids, he is so special and teaches me so much more about being a parent and about life. For that I am grateful.
The area where I have grown the most...
Learning how to connect with my son.
The hardest thing for me to learn was...
All kids have challenges and we need to put ourselves in their shoes at times. I know my son has come a long way and I am super proud of him, he is the light of my life and I am so blessed to be able to be his mom.
Do you have any recommended resources such as blogs, websites, or books that we can share?
Raised Good blog and my son and I love to sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and "You are My Sunshine" together.
