There’s a whole lot going on during Autism Awareness month. There’s a huge focus put on people becoming more aware, understanding and excepting of those with Autism. That’s certainly not a bad thing at all.
Having said that, one thing that often goes unmentioned has to do with the parents responsible for raising these amazing people with Autism.
We all know of that raising awareness is important however, I really want to focus my efforts on helping Autism parents. The reason for this is simple. By helping to buildup and support Autism parents, they can put more into their kids with Autism.
This year my focus is on reminding Autism parents to take care of themselves.
Self-care is so incredibly important when you’re an Autism parent because the sheer amount of stressed we face on a daily basis, can have a major impact on our health.
By taking the necessary steps to care for ourselves, we will be in a better position to parent our kids with Autism, and do so in a more sustainable way.
