“Connections” Support for Parents

father-daughterIt’s all about connections when supporting a child with extra needs. This month the Connections Parent and Family Information and Support Group will be discussing self-care for parents.

Parenting children with special needs comes with many challenges and rewards. Parents are busy focusing on completing homework, finding resources, attending to challenging behaviors, medication disbursement, and transporting their children to various therapies. In addition, families must also manage day to day living tasks. Many parents are so busy conquering the challenging needs of their children that they sacrifice the time needed to care for themselves.

Come enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and snacks with us while we brainstorm ways parents can better care for themselves, and ultimately take better care of their children. We’ll talk about balancing the needs of our children with our own needs and how to carve out time in our busy schedules  for ourselves.
