Encouragement to Parents: Grief

When a child is born, parents have certain expectations of that child.  These expectations may be based on the family they grew up in, the society they live in, the impressions gleaned from t.v., movies, or numerous other sources.  When the perceived expectations do not meet the child’s abilities, there can be periods of grief: sadness or even anger over “what should have  been”. Grief appears in many different forms and is not linear.  It’s important for parents to recognize their own feelings toward their child and his strengths and weaknesses.  Its o.k. to have these emotions but it’s also critical to let your child know that you love him and are supporting him as he struggles no matter what you are feeling.   Remember, he is also feeling some of these very same emotions. Counselors in your area may help you find a balance with your feelings as you work with your precious child.
