Just a reminder

When your children use the toilet consistently, appreciate it.

When they understand the relationship of numbers to objects, appreciate it.

When they do something because it would please you, appreciate it.

When they sleep more than six hours a day, appreciate it.

When they make a connection between the name of an emotion and their own feeling, appreciate it.

When they have dreams and aspirations and show thoughtfulness and kindness, by all means, appreciate it.

Whether or not you CHOOSE to parent a child who is challenged in these areas has no bearing on its difficulty. And don't believe for a second that any amount of money is what makes it all worthwhile. If you think I'm wrong on these points, please enlighten me.


  1. Amen! I totally agree with you... just wanted to give you a hug. :)

  2. Thanks for the reminders. May God daily give you the strength, wisdom, and patience that you need. ((hugs))
