Parenting FASD

I am exhausted. I am frustrated.

I have been knitting quite a bit, and eventually got started on the skirt to go with the knitted blouse.

I have even “worked” a few days in the last month. I also went on a great 2 hour trail ride, that I trotted almost the whole way… and now I am having a FMS flair. Not bad 3 days later. Therapy for it is going ok, and a new rheumatologist is seeing me in 2 weeks.

Nadia is still teething and now is having some stomach upset.

 

What I am really frustrated with right now is that there is no advice or recommended way to parent a child with FASD. Only, you cant change the child, so change the environment. No one gets it. I have read a few books that teach parenting skills for other behavior issues, but not all the solutions or techniques can carry over to FASD.  There is just the on purple book, and our child cant communicate well enough for most of those strategies to work.

So I spend too much time surfing the web looking for more articles and YouToube videos that just might have some other way to look at it….
