Of course all children are special, and they all have their own challenges, but I am talking about children whose needs are truly extraordinary when compared to the norm (be it physical, mental, emotional, developmental or health related) I suggested a board devoted to this but it seems there is not enough traffic at this time (although there have been recent threads regarding Downs Syndrome, Autism, homeschooling special needs, hospital stays, emotional issues, etc) I know you're out there, and I know that I for one do not post much about my struggles as a parent with two children with special needs. The world is not a welcoming place to our children and I have grown hesitant to open myself without a safe haven of similar parents. I would really like to see a separate forum- maybe for all people dealing with special challenges rather than children, or a sub-topic in parenting issues. What are your thoughts?
