It is human nature to plan for the worst.
We let our emotions run wild with reasoning of all the hopeless possibilities of failure.
People do not intentionally want to focus on only the negative possibilities for their child. Yet, it comes all too simply have these non-productive thoughts.
Raising a child is an emotional time of highs and lows. While growing up as a child is an emotional time of highs and lows. Combining this equation with studying disabilities makes the hereafter look bleak.
I remember all talks that my middle school counselor would give me about my Permanat Record! When it reality, this permanent piece of paper had no barring on my future, other than how it shape my thoughts of the future.
What kind of world would we live in if our grades were admittedly permanent? If you look back at my narrative cards, you would not be impressed.
Fortunately for all of us with studying disabilities, the hereafter is brighter than ever.
The one chapter that is never taught to kids and parents is about planning realistically and roughly for the future.
Have you ever admittedly taken a piece of paper and written out the worst case situation?
What does it look like? My assumption is this situation is not half as bad as you feel about it.
In the contemporary world your emotions are being played. Newspapers and Television station know that our body is best superior for 60,000 years ago. They know we are drawn to negative things. Instead of being a pawn to their game, take control! Take the time to admittedly write out the worst case situation. What I have found is that next to one does this! Most citizen can rattle off some perfect world where their kid attends Harvard, marries the perfect women, and is a millionaire by 30.
Yet, doing the practical step of admittedly writing down what the worst case scenario is over looked. By framing what is the worst thing that can happen, you finally see that no matter what we are going to be ok, we are going to have house around us, and we will be able to survive.
What does having a studying disability mean for your child’s future? Very little. Did you know in America we have a 97% literacy rate? Did you know if you are even reading this narrative that you are above 91% of the World? Only 600 million citizen have computers. Right off the bat, you have a great situation than most people! Keep in mind a studying disability admittedly affects the basic of studying for your kid. However, do not go on a un-need emotional tirade on the effects of their future!
