Paint Your Life Beautiful
Parenting a special needs child is definitely an art, not a science, so think of this website as one big art class. I’ll share tools, techniques and tips to help you learn how to manage your life and find your new normal. For now, I am focusing on teaching special education at home. As I have time, I will add to the categories below.
Child care encompasses healthcare, education, character building and life skills. We’ll cover things like Behavior, Life Skills, Education, Communication, Relationships and Future Planning.
Home care includes everything it takes to make your home run smoothly and efficiently including: Cleaning, Organizing, Meals, Record Keeping, Financesand Family Management.
Self care is all about making sure mama can function because if not, the household doesn’t function. We talk about Physical Health, Emotional Health,, Mental Health, Spiritual Health, Relationships and Getting Out of Survival Mode.
