SSP Ep005 - "Expectation vs. Reality" - Coming to Terms with Raising a Child with Special Needs
1848

On this episode, we discuss the challenges of raising a son with special needs and the emotional dilemma it can have on us as his parents. Our discussion dives deep into the daily struggle of where and how to place our expectations with the hard reality of his abilities both physically, mentally and emotionally. Are we setting our son up to fail by putting him in situations where we have an expectation of him to behave according to "social norms" when he may or may not have the emotional and behavioral ability to do so? Are we putting too much pressure on him and ourselves to be something that he is not and never will?
