Thank you for joining me for Day Three of Homeschooling Children with Special Needs. Today also happens to be Blogging Through the Alphabet day. We're currently on Letter N, which is perfect. Letter N is for Needs.
We all have needs. We all need air to breathe, food to eat, water to drink, shelter to keep us warm and dry. Some of us have different needs than others. It doesn't make us better or worse than someone else...just unique. For example, I need monthly IV Infusions to help my body fight against infections. Having diagnoses of Autism, ADHD, and several Learning Disabilities means my son needs extra help learning Life Skills, Social Skills, and School Subjects. This just makes him unique. I think he's amazing. But, I am very biased.
If we're truly honest, none of us is perfect. We all have areas in our lives that we need to work a little harder on to achieve our goals. Some of us will achieve those goals quickly while others will take a longer time. What matters isn't how long it takes. Rather, it is that we keep persevering that truly matters. We must never give up.
Children with Special Needs and Parents of Children with Special Needs have amazing courage and strength. They face their fears head-on because there honestly is no other choice. As parents, we push ourselves past our limits for our children. Yet, it is essential that we remember to take care of ourselves as well. We can't take care of those we love if we are not taking care of ourselves. Remember to reach out to others. Find support. Get rest when you can. Eat well. Stay healthy.
