What’s Your Favorite Piece of Special Needs Mom Wisdom?
Being a mom of a kid with special needs makes you an expert on all sorts of things—therapy for your child, medical lingo, convincing insurance companies to pay bills. Sadly, we rarely get recognition for our expertise. And so I loved the Mom Wisdom Wall at the P&G house at BlogHer, a conference for bloggers I recently attended. Visitors could share their brilliance there, in honor of their Proud Sponsor of Moms campaign. For every person who jumped in, P&G donated $10 to the Special Olympics—up to $5000. Awesomeness.
I went with “Always, always trust your gut.”
Some other favorite pieces of special needs mom wisdom:
• Forget about typical child development; your child is on his own timeline.
• Everything does not have to be a Therapeutic Activity. It’s OK to just be a parent sometimes and let your kid just be a kid.
• Look at the ways your child is more alike than different than other children—and encourage others to see that too.
