Chris

Do you work outside the home? If so, what do you do?
I work for an auditing firm.

What do you do to relax?
Play drums, watch Netflix, hang out with my wife!

What benefits has Connecting for Kids brought to you and your family?
Connecting for Kids has brought a lot of benefits including social networking opportunities on Facebook, the ability to have people who have already navigated this difficult path to mentor and help you, feedback on beneficial services and just companionship.

Which have been your favorite Connecting for Kids resources?
The Facebook Chat Group and the CFK Dad get together.

What I worry about most...
How will my son function in his 20s when my wife and I are older.

How parenting a child who struggles has changed my ideas on parenting...
There is no one size fits all. It has changed my ideas on actual life itself. I look at everything from a different perspective. It puts the trivial things "normal" families worry about in perspective and helps you to really focus on the small, wonderful accomplishments that matter most. Sometimes not being caught up in the "rat race" of having the smartest or best athlete for a child, you can just enjoy and love them for all that they will be and everything that they are.

The hardest thing for me to learn was...
What makes sense to me doesn't necessarily make sense to my son. His view of the world, I would imagine, is much different.  He is almost four and has essentially no expressive language, so for me it is difficult to view the world as he does.

Chris is the father of two children.
