Not What I Expected

Help and Hope for Parents of Atypical Children

Book - 2015
Average Rating:
Rate this:
As diagnosis rates continue to rise for autism, ADHD, learning disabilities and other developmental differences, parents face a maze of medical, psychological and educational choices - and a great deal of emotional stress. Many books address children's learning or behaviour problems and advise parents what they can do to help, but until Not What I Expected, there were no books to explain what parents go through emotionally. This book helps parents embrace their child with acceptance, compassion and joy.

This book really helped me understand my emotional journey with my son who has recently been labeled with LD. I would highly recommend this book if you are struggling with your emotions in parenting. Acceptance is key.
