The long awaited blessings of having a child bring simultaneous bouts of confusion and uncertainty regarding the vast parenting responsibilities that come with raising that child. When the child has a disability, sometimes the tasks can seem especially daunting. In this article, the authors aim to guide parents of children who display challenging behaviors to accept trials head on and to persevere amidst threats to their self acceptance as effective parents. Using the acronym, I ACCEPT ME, nine strategies are suggested to help parents accept themselves regarding their competence in nurturing children who exhibit behavioral and emotional challenges.
