While our children might share a common diagnosis such as Billy Ray's Down Syndrome, Autism, Bipolar, ADHD they are unique individuals. I can share about Billy Ray but your child or adult child may experience life differently. I believe that parent helping parent is the best education. I don't want this to be a one sided blog. Your comments help others.
I do feel that I have something to share with parents of younger complex children. However, the biggest goal is to encourage others to communicate and adapt. It is my hope on this blog, in Parenting Your Complex Child (AMACOM Books April 2006) and my websites to help parents figure out what works for their child as an individual. I don't expect you to do what I do for Billy Ray. I want to help you find what works for your child.
Talk to me. Tell me what is helpful in this blog and what isn't. If you have something to share about your child it will help others reading too.
