Support groups can be amazingly therapeutic, allowing strained to-the-limit parents to verbalize what they’re feeling about themselves and their child. Ask your doctor, school psychologist, or social worker if they know of any parent or family group that might be helpful to you. If you don’t want to join a support group, find one or two other parents who are facing similar challenges. Together, you can help each other through difficult times. Just knowing that someone else is experiencing similar successes and struggles can help relieve some of your stress.
