40 THINGS PARENTS OF KIDS WITH SPD HATE TO HEAR
Parenting is hard enough without getting unwanted advice others. Parenting kids with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and getting unwanted advice and suggestions from others is downright maddening.
Sometimes these comments are made because others don’t understand SPD. Sometimes they are made because someone is really trying to offer some comfort. And sometimes others think that what they have to say might actually help you and your child.
Every parent of a child with SPD has heard some suggestion that they hate to hear. We struggle EVERYDAY to help our child. We have read every parenting book, we have tried every parenting technique. Most of us have sought advice from medical professionals at some point. And we have all questioned our parenting skills. So when a stranger, teacher, friend, or family offers their advice, it can send us spiraling.
