We all read about having a “challenging” child. The challenges can range from simple behavior issues to a wide-range of diagnosed learning disabilities and illnesses. It seems to me it’s hard enough – these days – to raise good kids, period. Imagine when you add the stress of a real illness or a real challenging mental or learning disorder to the mix?
How do you cope? How does a relationship/marriage cope? What if you are doing the parenting alone? How much help is available in the public sphere? Do friends stay or abandon you? Do relatives? Who do you turn to, to simply rant or share a hard day’s frustration? THIS is the topic for #DadChat on Thursday, May 30 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET. Prizes tonight – read further for details and images.
Our special co-host is a #DadChat regular Kim Hix who together with her son, Zach is confronting this sort of challenge HEAD-ON and with such a positive spirit. Zach and Kim are generously giving away three prize packages at this week’s #DadChat. BUT, as usual, you will have to earn the prizes! One winner per family, please.
