Re: Sometimes I feel like I'm not cut out to be a SN mom
No judgement here. I have a nonverbal sn kiddo who is also sick and has been hitting me nonstop because he is in pain. For the hour preceding bedtime I finally hid from him (I could see him but he couldn't see me) because I was so fed up and couldn't cope. He hits a lot when he is in pain. Fortunately my son is able to point at a communication board and tell me he is in pain and where but it doesn't stop the hitting and tantrums.
Sometimes special needs parents need to be a little selfish. If you sacrifice everything you will have nothing left to give so don't feel too guilty about doing what you need to cope and get through another day.
