Happy New Year
As we wrap up the year 2022, I want you to take the time to acknowledge yourself for what you DID for your child on the spectrum over the last year.
Having a child on the spectrum is not easy.
So how can you praise yourself right now?
Whether it was driving them to and from their services or school.
Not getting frustrated when they were having their tantrums or aggressive episodes.
That you didn’t take it personally when they were biting you or hitting you.
That you took your child to the park or out in public to give them experiences even when you had thoughts to stay home because it would be easier.
That you hugged and loved your child and told them you love them even when they couldn’t say it back.
That you stood up for yourself and your decisions when other family members disagreed.
That you changed their diaper, pull up, or poop off your rugs or walls without any complaints.
How can you acknowledge yourself for this past year as a parent to a child on the spectrum?
Because if you’re in my world and reading this right now, I know you’ve done a lot.
Praising yourself tells your brain that you are worthy as a parent.
It diminishes self-criticism and tells your brain that you are worthy of doing what needs to be done to move your child forward.
It tells your brain that you can and will get the results you want for your child the more you continue to praise yourself.
In 2023, what do you want to DO for your child?
If you want to SEE more results and you want to DO more, I am here for you and so is my team.
We see results within one month.
If you’re ready to kick off the New Year on the right foot, then let’s go.
Happy New Year to you and yours.
Be safe, healthy and happy!
