We have been talking about advocating for your child at school and at the doctors’ office. However, always stand up for your child. If you have questions or that “gut feeling”. Go to the internet! There is so much information available to you as a parent.

Remember that it is all not true however, keep looking and checking sources. Remember the saying, “If it’s too good to be true, it’s probably a scam”. So beware of products that claim they can fix everything. Do stand up for your child and search for the truth. Sometimes it will not be the first person you talk to about your child. I can’t tell you how many specialists I spent money on with no results until I found the right one for my child. Don’t give up, just ask questions and regroup.

Next week we will move on to another subject. I just felt that this was a very important subject for parents. We are so often told that everything will be fine. If you have a question, just ask until you feel it is the right answer. I believe that the earlier you detect and start to work with a problem, the easier it is to improve that problem.
