The Mental Hurdles of Parenting Children with Disabilities and Chronic Illness

Parenthood can often be said to be one of the hardest endeavors of a person’s lifetime. There is no user manual or how-to-guide to steer matters in the right direction when things go wrong as a parent. One of the most difficult situations a parent can be put in is guiding their child through a disability or chronic illness. While addressing the needs of the child, it is not unusual for the affected guardians to be neglected. Mental health has been increasingly taking the stage as being a crucial part of a healthy life.
