— Deanna Picon

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 17, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Raising a child with a disability, while balancing work and family responsibilities is no easy task for even the most devoted parent.

“Fathering a special needs child requires inner strength, patience and extraordinary love for one’s son or daughter. Often times, these dedicated dads are overlooked for their contributions,” said Deanna Picon, founder of Your Autism Coach, LLC and author of The Autism Parents’ Guide To Reclaiming Your Life (http://www.amazon.com/dp/1497581222). “So, on this special day, let’s acknowledge those who give so much of themselves to their families.”

Fathers can apply these simple tips to have a wonderful Father’s Day and throughout the year.

● Manage your health. It’s important to take care of yourself, especially with everything on your plate. Get at least six hours of sleep, make time to eat properly and exercise. Hitting the gym is an effective way to work off stress and stay fit. A simple walk around the neighborhood can clear your mind.

● Stay true to yourself. Don’t allow your child’s disability to define you. Like any parent, much of your life is going to be centered on your children, but that doesn’t mean you should completely abandon the hobbies, events and activities you enjoy doing. Keep in touch with friends and family. Call for a quick chat or send a friendly text. Invite the guys over to watch the game or for a cookout.

● Give yourself permission to enjoy. Don’t feel guilty for having a good time, even if it’s only once in a while. Ask a family member or close friend to watch your child for a few hours, so you can go to the billiards hall to shoot some pool with your buddies. Go on a fishing trip. Attend an auto show. It will be beneficial to unload the weight of your responsibilities for a short time.

● Accept unspoken praise and appreciation. Your spouse or partner may be too overwhelmed in the midst of all the challenges the two of you face to tell you how much they care. Your special needs child may be unable to properly communicate how grateful they are that you accept and love them. Nevertheless, know that your child and family appreciate you and the difference you make in their lives.

● Take a bow! You stepped up and accepted the challenges of raising a child with special needs. Because of your determination and advocacy, your son or daughter will have a better life. That’s worth patting yourself on the back about. And don’t forget to reward yourself. Do something nice, no matter how small. Buy tools for your workshop or new, athletic clothes to work out in.

Five High School Graduation Tips For Special Needs Parents

Author Deanna Picon Offers Ways To Applaud Both Student And Parent Achievements

Special needs parents should take tremendous pride in getting to this significant milestone in their child's life. A high school graduation is a celebration for the entire family.”

— Deanna Picon

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 14, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Celebrating a high school graduation can be very exciting but also a little scary for special needs parents. Leaving the known behind and entering new territory can be an unsettling experience, even with fresh potential for growth and success ahead.

“Special needs parents are leaving the comfort and security of the familiar school experience with their child. Now, together with their son or daughter, they must adjust to the new environment of a more adult, community centered or work-oriented world,” said Deanna Picon, founder of Your Autism Coach, LLC and author of The Autism Parents’ Guide To Reclaiming Your Life (http://www.amazon.com/dp/1497581222). “But whatever lies ahead, parents should take tremendous pride in getting to this significant milestone in their child’s life.”

Parents can apply these simple tips to celebrate their child’s achievements as well as their own:

● Recognize your dedication. Raising a special needs child isn’t easy. Managing all aspects of your child’s daily living – including personal needs, school activities, therapy and medical appointments – can be overwhelming. Balancing job and family responsibilities is stressful. But because of your determination and hard work, your child will have a better life. And his/her graduation is a major step in this direction. That’s worth patting yourself on the back about.

● Take pride in your child’s accomplishments. Graduating from a specialized school is no walk in the park and your child did it. She/he worked diligently and consistently on their demanding and time-consuming IEP goals over the years and performed them to the best of their ability. And, now your son or daughter is a high school graduate. This calls for a huge round of applause.

● Acknowledge your successful school partnership. Navigating an educational system that was vastly different from your own when you were growing up is challenging. But you succeeded and became an effective, parent advocate. Most importantly, by actively participating in your child’s schooling and being a full partner with the teaching team, you’ve given your son or daughter a solid education and put him/her on the path to a brighter future.

● Manage your future expectations. As with most parents, you just want to give your child the best life possible. But for special needs parents, it can be more difficult. After high school, your son or daughter may transition to a day rehabilitation, vocational training or volunteer worksite program. Your child will have new personal and/or work-related goals to achieve as they build upon the foundation they received in school. However, there will be new issues and challenges to deal with and overcome as they adjust to being out of school. Continue to support your son or daughter with love, encouragement and guidance. Use all the skills and expertise you’ve developed over the years and apply them to the next phase of your journey–your child’s adulthood.

● Celebrate you! Know you’re amazing. If anything, you’re an even stronger, self-reliant and better person for having stepped up to the challenges of life with a special needs child. You’re a rock star in your child’s life and she/he would be lost without you. You deserve a medal for the heroic things you do on an everyday basis. Nobody’s perfect, but you’re pretty great!

National Parents Organization Urges Michigan Lawmakers to Move Shared Parenting Forward

Michigan Joins 20 States Considering Family Court Reform

LANSING, MICHIGAN, USA, June 13, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Michigan lawmakers have the opportunity to improve children’s educational achievements, decrease their use of drugs, and improve their overall health and adjustment without any cost to the taxpayer by passing shared parenting into law. With these benefits to hundreds of thousands of Michigan children in mind, National Parents Organization urges the Judiciary Committee of the Michigan House of Representatives to pass House Bill 4691 when it votes on the bill this Thursday, June 15, at 8:30 a.m.

The legislation embraces parental equality and shared parenting – a flexible arrangement where children spend as close to equal time as possible with each parent after divorce or separation. Specifically, the bill proposes a rebuttable presumption of shared parenting when parents divorce or separate, meaning the conversation begins with the two-parent solution.

“Passage of this bill will work to ensure that children receive the consistent love and care of not one, but both parents after separation or divorce,” said Linda Wright, a Michigan mother who’s taking an active role in working to pass this legislation. “We can’t afford to allow our broken family court system to continue with the sole custody status quo – our children can’t be deprived of either parent any longer.”

The bill had had multiple hearings in the past two months and is sponsored by Rep. Jim Runestad with co-sponsorship from Rep. Tim Kelly, Rep. Scott VanSingel, Rep. Peter Lucido, Rep. Roger Hauck. Rep. Tristen Cole and Rep. Jim Tedder.

While shared parenting remains unusual, a trend toward shared parenting has developed in recent years. It has been the usual arrangement for several years in Sweden and Australia, and research there has shown much better outcomes for children. A handful of states in the U.S. have benefited from laws supportive of this arrangement for several years. Plus, in the last year alone, more than 20 states have considered the reform, and states including Kentucky have passed bills supportive of shared parenting in recent months. At the same time, research continues to show that shared parenting is in the best interest of children when their parents divorce or separate.

“It is wonderful that Michigan has this historic opportunity to move child custody laws in line with gender equality as well as the overwhelming body of research showing that most children desperately want and need shared parenting after divorce or separation,” said Ned Holstein, MD, Founder and Board Chair of National Parents Organization. “I urge Michigan lawmakers to swiftly move this proposal into law. Instead of setting up parents for a bitter and unnecessary custody battle, the bill will allow families to heal from the pain of divorce and separation from a position of equality and co-parenting.”

HOUSE BILL 4691: COMMENTS FROM LEGISLATIVE HEARINGS

Rep. Runestad said: “It is in the best interest of children to be raised by two-loving parents whenever possible. Divorce between two parents is not a good reason for the system to profit by pitting parents against each other in an ugly competition over who is the better parent. A child needs and wants both parents, and nothing is more important to people than their right to take care of their child. Parents can come to agreements about what is best for the child when there is a presumption that parenting time should be shared between parties. This legislation is for children, and there are provisions in the bill to protect children from an unfit parent and in domestic violence situations.”

Family law attorney David Helms said: “The Shared Custody Act will safeguard children’s rights and access to both parents. It will start both parties on the same footing and maintain the continuity necessary for a healthy, happy, well-adjusted and stable child.”

National Parents Organization, a charitable and educational 501 (c)(3) organization, seeks better lives for children through family law reform that establishes equal rights and responsibilities for fathers and mothers after divorce or separation.
