The Heartache of Raising a Child who Struggles
Jagged are the edges of a parent’s heart when they have a child who struggles.
The edges come from season after season of revolving patience and frustration; from simply wanting to help your child.
Sometimes we have to teach the same things over and over, because we need our kids to be self-sufficient in a difficult world. While this can be true in raising any child, it’s even more challenging when your child’s needs aren’t typical and they struggle with basic things.
You experience guilt and exhaustive intervention to uncover the tools they need. You want so badly for the world to see what you do: a beautiful human being who’s extraordinary in ways that aren’t measured. These kids struggle with basic things, but are commonly off the charts in qualities such as kindness, empathy, and creativity.
