Being a mother is a wonderful journey that every woman looks forward to. And we all know that parenthood is fraught with difficulties. But what if the child is special? What if the child is diagnosed with a disability?
Raising children with special needs presents huge psychological challenges for parents, which are frequently associated with anxiety, stress, isolation, and, in some cases, shame and depression.
Many parents are unaware of the challenges that come with raising a child with special needs, which adds pressure and stress to a couple's lives. Not to mention the societal obstacles and opinions that lack helpful and understanding traits, also contributing to the couple's stress. Many of us have witnessed a child's "meltdown" in a store or restaurant, as well as how others judge or look at the mother. Many mothers had to explain what was "wrong" with their child aloud to other parents in order to persuade them that their child is defined by a long list of deficiencies and need specialized care. These obstacles have a huge impact on the mom’s mental health, the couple's life, the relationship with the siblings, and their anxieties for the future.
Tanya Hamdan, a Parent Coach specialized in coaching parents of children with disabilities, is with us to speak on this episode about the challenges that every mom faces when raising a child with a disability and how to overcome those challenges in order to build a happy life with her partner, children, and family.Special أم
