Parenting is tough work. Parenting a child with special needs deserves its own gold medal. After all, no over-preparation can prepare you for the inevitable curveballs situations throw you. You can’t pause life.
Parenting a child with special needs is stressful, and stress can cause many physical and emotional issues for parents. Fortunately, there are a number of ways that parents can relieve stress. Options include finding help and respite care, prioritizing self-care, and seeking support through parent groups and therapy.
Special needs parenting isn't easy, and sometimes it can be overwhelming. Feelings of isolation and guilt can make it very hard to manage stress. So, too, can lack of practical and emotional support. In addition to curveballs from external factors, you could already be experiencing internal anxiety or frustration daily.
Therapy sets you up with healthy ways to cope with the various challenges you’re facing so that you can manage the overwhelming feelings you may experience daily. If you're feeling overwhelmed and struggling to make it through each day, now is the time to seek help.
