Things I Don’t Want To Hear as a Parent of Kids With Disabilities

“God gives special children to special parents

“But she LOOKS NORMAL!”

“That child just needs discipline

“I’m sorry

“He is taking too many medications, that is why he has problems.”

“She’ll grow out of it.”

“I could NEVER do it.”

My kid does it too.”

“Didn’t you know before birth?”

“It could be worse, at least she can walk.”

Parents, your feelings are valid, and you know your kids best.
