Have you come to the realization that there are some children who learn differently and one of them lives in your house? Fairly early on in my parenting journey, I realized that my path was not going to be like the paths I saw other people walking. Each year as I learned more and more about my daughter, I realized that our life together was different. Not better, not worse, but simply different. This was evident in many ways, including how she learned best.
The past ten years have been a journey of seeking to understand her unique personality, learning style, strengths, weaknesses, and needs. In the process, I’ve learned so much! And I want to share that information with other parents who are also trying to understand their child.
In this series, we’re exploring the world of children who learn differently. The series includes a wide variety of posts from different angles, authors, and perspectives. Some posts are lengthy and meaty. Some are brief. Some are funny. Some are serious. Some reflect my Christian faith. Some focus on homeschooling. Some are for all families regardless of education approach. Some tackle different learning struggles. Some focus on personality issues. But all of them are about successfully parenting children who learn differently.
I hope you find much in this series that will encourage you on your parenting journey!
