I am already in summer mode and I know I’ve written about this topic before but it is something that as “a special needs child” myself I feel it important to remind everyone! It wasn’t until I was in my early teens that I remember spending more than a night away from my parents! This was in part due to the fact that I was fearful to go to an overnight camp and because my extended family lives a great distance away; after much persuading my mother convinced me that my friend and I would have a blast at camp. She was right, we did have a blast!
I urge you to remember that it is okay to take time out for yourself. Being a parent is difficult at best. Being a parent of someone with a disability is harder still. I know that many of you will find yourself feeling guilty but don’t, you’re allowed a break now and then and if you make what your child is going to do during the break for them this will be a time they too will come to look forward to. I know I did.
