What not to say to a special needs parent…

Many of you know that I love the show ‘What Not To Wear’.   I’m so sad it’s ended. I miss Stacy (aka my cousin Miriam) and Clinton and their words of wisdom…

But I stumbled across a few other souls, from a totally different realm, who have REALLY useful wisdom which has helped me feel less alone, less questioning of myself (I’m always wondering if I am being too sensitive) and more empowered.

This special needs parent thing is a whole new world for me. And likely, it’s a new world for you too (likely because of me). So I want to share with you a few links which may help you better understand, better communicate and better support me (and my L) on this journey of ours.

Happy Reading!
