Up And Down Whiplash

Our kids are in survival mode much of the time.  Sometimes they seem so “normal” and even recovering nicely. Then, BOOM!  A bomb drops and we are reminded that our children’s brains are different.  Their stability is tentative.  Our job is to stay steady, stay the course.  It is our stability that saves the day and facilitates our children forward on the path to healing.

I call this the “UP and DOWN Whiplash.”  My emotions are in a perpetual “rear-ender.”  The whiplash is profound.  Put your neck brace on and steady on.

I am a grounded, loving person and my children struggle.  That is a fact.

I put my oxygen mask on before assisting others.  I have to.  How about YOU?
