Questions

By |October 16th, 2019|Family|0 Comments

I am speaking to parents of special needs children/adults.

Since my momma’s passing, my bio father’s passing and well my brother too […]

Autism…

A huge broad term with a lot of variations.

Trick or treating with children can be tricky at times even when they don’t have any special needs. Doing it in this day and age carries more weight than when we (myself) were growing up.

What we did without, now becomes an almost obsession

Dusty’s Art

Dusty has some coloring books and wanted to do some of them.

Not bad I’d say. I remind him to stay in the lines and this was the result.

What you think?

Anyone have suggestions or things you may do to aid your kids?

He graduated high school (2013) and well doesn’t do things like this anymore. Not […]

Another year older and some would say another year wiser but hey we can’t all be perfect. 😉

I have been MIA the past 4 weeks. It has been a very trying time considering my 21-year-old son has decided to take on actions of younger children to teens. Since my daughter has been away in […]

Children…and all that comes with it.

By |July 22nd, 2019|Family|0 Comments

Raising children can be one of the harder things parents have to do in their lives. As we all know there isn’t that perfect manual for us to guide us through the challenges that parenting presents. For me, since I have a “normal” one and a special needs one I had to throw […]
