The Grass is Not Always Greener on the Other Side
Special Needs Parenting can be a tough job and balance. Often times, parents, whether special needs or not will think that other parents have it better. FamilyAffaires.com Contributors, Christy Carlson and Debbie Schmidt of Just2Moms found themselves feeling that “the grass was greener” in each other’s home.
Debbie just sent her special needs son who has Asperger’s off to college and finds her self to be an empty nester. Christy just sent her oldest daughter to college and still has her special needs son at home. By their frank and honest conversation we learn that each carry their own worries and concerns.
Even if special needs parents look at parents that are not dealing with special needs, you will find that everyone has their own challenges in life.
