Today's blog comes from Brynn Burger from ADDitude Magazine. She speaks to the struggles of parenting a child, and the extra emotional and physical work it takes to raise and advocate for a child with special needs.
As a parent of a child with special needs, her words resonate with me, and I am happy to share them with you today.

Yesterday, I heard Marc Herzog, founder of Papa Bear Digital Protection, speak about protecting our children on the internet. I was a bit taken back by how easily our children can pick up social media channels, and how it can go from a fun place to a place of bullying, sarcasm and negativity.
He knows that families must do more to monitor and safeguard activities. So, he has extensive experience securing Apple and Android devices, and protecting families using social media, games, and apps. He offers hands-on instruction for anti-intrusion applications and addressing privacy concerns.
He offers consultation and implementation of a protection plan for your family's electronic devices, as well as Seminars.

Emotional regulation is a skill that we gain over time, as we mature and develop. For our children with an area of struggle, emotional regulation, or the ability to identify and experience emotions in a way that is congruent to the situation and with an appropriate intensity, is difficult.
Take a look at my blog with ADDitude Magazine where I offer suggestions to help parents help their children to gain emotional control and break the cycle of the emotional roller coaster.
