Helping other parents teach their kids about ours
Nowhere in my mom job description does it list "Educate other parents." But sure enough, that's become part of what I do as the parent of a kid with special needs. It hasn't always come easy, and over the years I've gotten better at it. Not a master, but better.
Still, I'm always curious to hear how other parents handle this. So I asked some of my favorite bloggers and advocates, including Holly Robinson Peete, what they wished other parents would teach their kids about children with special needs. The answers are over on my Babble blog; please take a look, and share it with parents. And of course, feel free to add your own thoughts on what you want parents to help their kids understand about our kids.
