Summer holidays are approaching and this can be a difficult time for special needs families
Here’s some things to remember:
Because this can be a time where parents & carers feel pressure from the flurry of social media posts of “grand days out”, but remember your “ grand day in” is exactly what’s best for your family.
“Home should be an anchor, a port in a storm, a refuge, a happy place in which to dwell, a place where we are loved and where we can love”.
There maybe some place new that you and your family try, you feel nervous about what may happen and how other people may react. But remember you are entitled to be there, and people will always judge what they do not understand.
But that doesn’t mean you have to give an explanation either.
“Some people only understand from their level of perception”.
People may organise activities without you, this will hurt you when you find out. But remember that you love your children for all that they are, and all that they will be.
“Your absence is for those who do not appreciate your presence”.
This can also be a time where you doubt yourself and your parenting. But remember “A bad day, doesn’t make you a bad parent”
no matter what you think, everyone has those days.
Remember to tell yourself, “it is ok if all you did today was survive “❤️.
Besides “ Not everything that weighs you down, is yours to carry”
Be kind to yourself this holiday 🌈
