It’s a milestone that all special needs parents experience at some point. Repeatedly. Someone makes an insensitive comment and you have to decide how to respond. They’ve remarked about your child’s diagnosis or your parenting. They’ve implied that you’re doing it all wrong or declared you to be a superhero. And they’ve given you unsolicited advice that comes across exactly the wrong way. A listener’s question inspired this episode all about strategies for handling these super uncomfortable moments. I’m happy to share a few actionable tips and ideas for handling whatever nonsense might come your way from a well-meaning (or even a not-so-well-meaning) friend, family member, or stranger.
Resources I Mentioned in this Week’s Episode:

Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils by Carolyn Mein
