The Power of Parent Vulnerability – Resources from the 2019 CHC Breakfast

mother son 412Parenting is a lifelong journey filled with incredible highs, daunting lows and everything in between. As parents, we do anything necessary to be certain our kids are happy and healthy. Since there’s no universal parent handbook to “all the right answers,” sometimes we get stuck. Sometimes we’re scared. We always worry. The sheer magnitude of responsibility can make us feel isolated and vulnerable.

CHC wants you to know that you are not alone in these feelings, especially if you are the parent of a child living with learning differences, mental health challenges or both. We want you to know that vulnerability can actually lead to power. The resources below confirm this truth.
