Personal Growth in Special Needs Parenting

“But, Elaine, isn’t it true that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger?”

It depends. Parenting and caregiving can build character and resilience. 

Is it your nemesis or your opportunity? And, at what cost?

In the best of times, human catastrophe can be a catalyst. Only certain people see it as so and then intentionally use it for their personal growth.

Those are my kind of clients.

They want to make a difference, to see the good, to make lemonade when life gives lemons. They refuse to go down with the ship. They want to rise up with boldness and grace and love. They want to smile more. They want to keep their peace, come what may.

And just in case you’re wondering what kind of person this is…

It’s someone who faces reality and also knows there is something more, a better way to experience reality. 

And, so they get intentional and go on a quest for better.

Why am I so confident I can help you get a handle on special needs parenting and caregiver overwhelm?

About Elaine Morgan Parent Coach

I am a parent of an adult child for whom parenting crossed over into characteristics of caregiving a long time ago. I’ve been a parent for 40 years and walked the special needs parent journey for over three decades.

And, when I realized this child would be dependent on me for my lifetime it scared me, and I had to do something different. So, I got really thoughtful about it.

Looking back, there is a lot of water gone under the bridge in the last 25 years with sleepless nights, behaviors, family anger, searching for the perfect school, trying everything imaginable (you know what I mean) and today it can still get intense at times.

Sometimes it feels oppressive to have a dependent at my age. I worry about the future for this one. I ask what will happen when we as parents are gone.

The difference of now compared with back then? It is called hard-won wisdom. Now, I sleep well. I almost always enjoy feeling grounded and live at peace. I carry on with life with more ease and lightheartedness than ever before. I am amazed at the sense of spaciousness and well-being I feel since I learned how to keep parenting from swallowing my life.

 

So, simply put, you can be confident that I can bring some sage wisdom to you because…

I’ve been where you are, seen the beauty of change in my own life, and I’ve supported and mentored hundreds of special needs parents and caregivers like you to do the same.  

WHAT YOU CAN DO NOW.

The Quest of Special Needs Parents

The End Game of Parent Coaching.

The end game is actually the journey itself, the quest.

One thing is certain, change is inevitable and the journey always continues. For our purposes, your loved one will also change, right along with the rest of the world, meaning there isn’t a permanent set of skills to learn. To be sure, a few skills won’t hurt.

Our 5-Point Process is built on critical life skills that empower you as a parent of a student or adult with challenges. We mentor you in wisdom so you are prepared to: (1) be flexible and shift as needed, (2) pivot if necessary, (3) keep showing up again and again, and (4) go with the flow always.

In Closing

As parents, the only arriving we can do at some end game is to arrive home to ourselves. Real and true.

Our individualized parent coaching and our recognized 5-Point Process is all about aligning to yourself with a wise rooted perspective and a few critical life skills that will continue to support you over the years, come what may.

You will become an empowered parent, in such a way that you can continue shifting to meet any demands and also continue arriving.

Journey on, my friend. Thanks for stopping by.

I know you are stressed and possibly exhausted, so I make deciding to work with me easy for you!

One of the things I’ve learned in my life and through the years of conversations I’ve had with my clients is that taking action feels hopeful, self-affirming and empowering.

But the last decade has also helped me come to appreciate and understand that sometimes the process of making yet another decision related to parenting can also feel extremely daunting. Some question spending more money on something that might not work. Many are afraid to hope that help is even possible.
