Increasing Our Acceptance as Parents of Children with Special Needs
Loewenstein, David
Exceptional Parent, v37 n12 p28-29 Dec 2007
Accepting the limitations of a child whose life was supposed to be imbued with endless possibilities requires parents to come to terms with expectations of themselves and the world around them. In this article, the author offers some helpful strategies for fostering acceptance and strengthening family relationships: (1) Remember that parenting is a marathon, not a sprint; (2) Nurture ourselves; (3) Recognize the importance of collaborative relationships; (4) Focus on strengths; (5) Contemplate what really is important; and (6) Live in the here and now.
