I also enjoy watching sports and HGTV since having children has completely deleted my attention span for in depth stories and hour long dramas.
What benefits has Connecting for Kids brought to you and your family?
For me, CFK provides sanity. It is a community of parents just like me who can almost perfectly relate to our struggles. This is invaluable in a world where I suddenly felt like an outcast and bad mother. I have made connections that have talked me down from the proverbial ledge on the worst of days and celebrated with me on the best.
Simply having a mother or two (in this case, CFK has several within easy reach) to talk to about struggles, confusion and frustration is so wonderful. Friends with no knowledge of these issues are nice, but it's not the same as someone who is walking or has walked in your shoes. I no longer feel isolated and insufficient.
