This is a continuation of the first 5 parenting lessons I shared in the previous post, lessons I learned through the experiences of being the mom of a special needs child. They gave me a more clear perspective about how to parent my children.
When my parenting ‘wisdom’ didn’t work out the way I had in mind, and I had to acknowledge my complete lack of patience and inner peace, I felt desperate. There were times I cried: “O Lord, I just can’t raise this child. I’m not fitted for this job!”
