    How do you cope with all the special needs parenting stress?

    How do you manage to cope with lots the stress that goes along with being a special needs parent? What do you do to simply make it through the day?

    Some days are better than others. :) That being said stress here is always constant. I think what we try and do most..is laugh...sounds simple but its sometimes hard. I tend to take things so seriously and stress over every little aspect and be the constant detective. I have to back off and just enjoy my kids and laigh at their corney jokes..silly behavior...that being said..yesterday was a bad day..i quite working as my kids need me at home to facilitate the chaos. Yesterday thr kids were great..bit we were dealing with massive money stress and a paycheck that wasnt nearly enough to cover needs let alone wants. Yesterday..i found myself making brownies..thst was my stress buster...lol. for us its the little things..esoecially of they kick the seratonin up. :)

    One of mine is "moderately severe" (!) but not aggressive. The other has mild symptoms. I find that they love it when we turn up the music,lower the lights and jump and dance and laugh. They are usually happy and while most days are good they are just extremely busy.

    I think the financial aspect is one of the most depressing parts. The autism we have learned to enjoy but the financial burden associated with it really pisses me off.

    We have good and bad days with our children. They love their new trampoline we bought them. So we go outside every so often to jump on it. We play duck duck goose , and other games. We bounce around when we play the game. We make sure that we do not bounce to high. They love it and to watch them laugh and play nice together makes me smile.
