Ep 170 Parenting a Child with Special Needs While Practicing Self-care When you are a parent of a child with autism, you know how difficult it can be to cope with their needs. You go the extra mile to care for them. It's not easy to do that. This isn't the same situation you see every day with a child who has no special needs. Plus, you have to stretch your patience as far as you can. That's how a mother's love and care for her children manifests itself. However, the giver of unconditional love ends up emptied and without time for herself. Many support programs have already been established for kids on this spectrum. But there are nearly not as many support communities for parents having to care for these kids. But they also need support especially because stress can factor in when caring for these kids. As parents, we also need time to care for ourselves. We just cannot sit there and accept things the way it is. We need to find support who can also understand what we go through and provide an avenue for us to voice things out and share ideas and insights on how to take care of ourselves while taking care of our loved ones. In this episode, Bina shares the struggles of being a mom to a child with Autism. She recounts the hardships she has to go through as she tries to get to know more ways to properly handle a child with tantrums. And in this journey of dealing with a child in this spectrum, she talks about ways to see blessings despite the difficulties. And most importantly learning to set boundaries and finding time for self-love to keep your own sanity. “The number one thing that I've learned is, to ask for help.” - Bina Bendale What you'll learn from this episode: 02:25 - Who Bina Bendale is 03:30 - The circumstances that led to what she does now [ the challenges and stigma she has to deal with ] 10:44 - Her struggles as a parent dealing with a child who has Autism 14:28 - What an unconditional love and support of a mother look like 18:34 - Seeing blessings in setbacks [significant lessons her children taught her and what their family dynamics look like at home] 22:35 - The biggest lesson she learned when it comes to raising in two different spectrums [talking about trantrums versus meltdown] 25:11 - Important thoughts on the show 'Love on the Spectrum' [and what her dream is for children with Autism] 27:47 - Describing the nature of children with Autism and how to deal with them 32:10 - Realizing her purpose now and learning self-love and self-care Connect with Bina Bendale: https://binanursecoach.com/ Connect With Leslie Thornton: weightlossalbany.com E: Leslie@LeslieMThornton.com Facebook Twitter LinkedIn

Growing a family isn't always as easy as ABC... Sometimes it comes with a lot of heartache and trauma. Today I want to touch on a few of those harder topics because I want you to know that you are NOT alone! I see you, I can relate (to some extent), and you are allowed to ask questions. We are blessed to have a kind and understanding God that doesn't hold it against us when we ask "why?". He wants to be our comfort in those trying times; if we will just let him. We cover some heavy topics today and I wanted to share a few resources if you are dealing with any of those areas...

Special EducationSpecial education encompasses policies, classroom practices, and legislative approaches to advancing the learning of exceptional students. These students may require specialized instruction, resources, or other support services. Special education programs may include individualized education plans (IEPs), 504s, or other accommodations to meet the unique needs of each student. The goal of special education is to provide students with the skills and knowledge they need to reach their full potentials and to participate as fully as possible in their communities. This week on 16:1, we're diving into the details and analyzing the work of intervention specialists, administrators, and policy makers who advance the goals of special education for students across the country.Sources:The Ohio State University - Special EducationOhio Department of Education - Special EducationOhio Department of Education - Ohio Positive Behavioral Interventions & SupportsEncyclopaedia Britannica - Special EducationUS Department of Education - The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP)U.S. Department of Education's Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) - DataThe American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) - Overview of Funding for Pre-K–12 EducationUnderstood - The difference between IEPs and 504 plansB.I.G Solutions - 13 Categories of Disability Under IDEA Law

This episode discusses where to start when providing or coordinating care for a loved one.Providing care could be for a parent, spouse, child, or relative with special needs.Most people like to help others, and many make promises to their loved ones that they will be there to take care of them. This could mean coordinating or personally administering services. Either situation is an intense, time-consuming, and stressful job. The bottom line and main takeaway.... if you are providing care, it is okay to ask for help! You are human and can only do so much. __________________________________________________________________________________Issues to be aware of whether you are someone providing care or someone expecting someone else to provide you care as you age:Things rarely work out exactly how they were originally envisioned. You need to be flexible, willing to work with others, and watch out for guilt “traps”.You are only one person and can only give so much of yourself. It is okay not to be perfect You must consider your loved one's needs, your own needs, and the needs of others who depend on youMany people providing care for a loved one will experience a negative financial impact, such as missing work, leaving their employment altogether, or feeling obligated to spend their own resources to helpPeople who need care are very likely to need help physically. They might need someone to lean on to steady themselves when they walk, lift, or catch them as they fall. They might also need someone to go up and down stairs, carry things, or move items around in their home. Caregivers tend to put their loved ones first, so compounding the physical challenge for most caregivers is their tendency to get less sleep or rest, eat poorly (whatever is easy or fast), miss out on exercise routines, and all the physical ailments that can be caused by high stress. Providing or coordinating care for a loved one can create intense stress. Stress can inflict a great amount of damage on a person's individual health. It can also cause hyper-sensitivity with emotions that can easily lead to low patience or frustration, causing people to do or say things they might regret that they wouldn't normally do or say under less stressful situations.Those who need care can't always wait for you to be available and don't always communicate the best. They will need undivided attention for a myriad of issues at inconvenient times. You need to be prepared to put your life on hold for an indefinite period.You have to realize that there are boundaries to anyone's capabilities, and it is perfectly acceptable to ask for help for the benefit of your loved ones and yourself. d24d990d4dcf4581d880d89b923610fe0f9c309cFor more information or to get in touch with us, send us an email at email@example.comYou can also follow us on social media atFacebook - https://www.facebook.com/DitchTheSuits Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/ditchthesuits/Twitter - https://twitter.com/DitchtheSuitsWe'd also love for you to subscribe to this podcast and leave a 5-star rating and review!

Sometimes life doesn't turn out the way we hoped or expected. But what matters is not what happened…but what happens next. It's easy to get stuck dwelling on how we wish things would have turned out. But that rarely helps us move forward and craft a life with purpose. Part one of getting unstuck is being able to embrace what is and where we are today. Part two is then using our story to make a difference in the lives of others. That's exactly what Ceasarae Galvan has done. She is a military spouse, mom of four, and now a certified fair housing specialist who helps military families find accessible housing. She shares her story of becoming a military family in need of accessible housing and how she decided to do more than just fight for the needs of her daughter. I hope her story empowers and encourages you to embrace your own story…and to choose to craft a life with purpose!

Special needs to me is a way to help my children in the learning environment. And these labels are here to help us better understand ourselves and our children.

We are kicking off the New Year by discussing long-term care planning and how it should fit into your overall financial plan. But, when we say "long-term care," we are not talking about a policy you buy from an insurance agent or financial advisor to provide some financial relief should you ever need home-health or skilled nursing care. Not that! This series uses the terms "long-term care" and "eldercare planning" interchangeably.Long-term care planning could be for an aging parent, a spouse, or even a child with special needs. Someone who needs care, and this series will help you realize this planning is way more than just planning around money, finance, and funding. Whether you've ever been in the position of playing caretaker for a loved one or friend or have never had to experience this unique situation, stick with us for this first of three episodes and consider sharing with a friend.If you have any questions or feedback, please email us at email@example.com. We'd love to hear from you!
HAPPY NEW YEAR my friends!This season we take on the subject of resilience and how important building resiliency is in terms of our survival regarding our mental, physical and spiritual well being, no matter what stage of life we find ourselves. I have wanted to interview my good friend John Welling since the podcast's inception. His roles over the years as patriarch, Fire Chief/first responder, coach, sports official, youth mentor, volunteer with the Special Olympics and professional team leader have led to the birth of many power of one and power of one another moments.In this episode, John candidly talks about what resiliency looks like in his own journey, the mistakes he's made, what he's learned and the practices he puts in place to make a difference in the lives of others on a daily basis.John was blessed to have two loving parents who showed him the way and they instilled in him the core values of service and sacrifice. His father John had compassion and love for the mentally challenged and started a summer camp for children, which his family all became a part of. His mother, Anne, is an eloquent writer and communicator and below is an excerpt from a letter she wrote to the Operations Manager of the Penn Transplant Center after his father was blessed to be the lucky recipient of an organ donor.Life isn't about keeping score. It's not about how many friends you have. Not about if you have plans this weekend or if you're alone. It isn't about who you are dating, who you used to date, how many people you've dated, or if you haven't been with anyone at all. It isn't about who you have kissed. It's not about sex. It isn't about who your family is or how much money they have. Or what kind of car you drive. Or where you are sent to school. It's not about how beautiful or ugly you are. Or what clothes you wear, what shoes you have on, or what kind of music you listen to. It's not about if your hair is blonde, red, black, or brown. Or if your skin is too light or too dark. Not about what grades you get, how smart you are, how smart everybody else thinks you are, or how smart standardized tests say you are. It's not about what clubs you're in or howgood you are at "your" sport. It's not about representing your whole being on a piece of paper and seeing who will "accept the written you."LIFE JUST ISNT.But, life is about who you love and who you hurt. It's about who you make happy or unhappy purposefully. It's about keeping or betraying trust. It's about friendship, used as a sanctity or a weapon. It's about what you say and mean, maybe hurtful, maybe heartening. About starting rumors and contributing to petty gossip. It's about what judgments you pass and why. And who your judgments are spread to. It's about who you've ignored with full control and intention. It's about jealousy, fear, ignorance, and revenge. It's about carrying inner hate and love, letting it grow, and spreading it. But most of all, it's about using your life to touch other people's hearts in such a way that could have never occurred alone. Only you choose the way those hearts are affected, and those choices are what life's all about."For more information about John you can reach out to him via e-mail at: station27chief@comcast .net.For more information about Camp Jaycee and the Special Olympics and how you can get involved, please follow the links below.https://www.campjaycee.orghttps://www.specialolympics.org Support the show
SURPRISE!! We're still alive! And we're here to talk about how J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" speak to us on a deep level as special needs parents. So if you're a special needs parent, a Tolkien lover, or just someone who might enjoy two nerds making the ridiculous comparison that one man's beloved WWI-inspired fantasy epic is even remotely like parenting a special needs child, THIS EPISODE IS FOR YOU!!

Hey Mom, 2023 will be here very soon. Have you thought about how you want to change, grow, or achieve one goal?
