As parents, we want many of the same things for our children--to be happy, to be loved, and to do the right thing. Parents of children with special needs also have some additional wants--an independent future, inclusion, and typical milestones. These goals may seem impossible at times.
It happens. People make thoughtless remarks. You may feel your child has been excluded from activities or social events. The individual challenges you face may seem overwhelming with no relief in sight.
The seeming unfairness of it all may cause you to react with anger. Take a minute, step back, and think.
