It’s 2 am. I should be sleeping. Yet, all I can do is recount the events of the day and wonder where I went wrong.

The Most Supportive Facebook Groups for Parenting High Needs Children

First of all, you might be wondering what a “High Needs Child” is in the first place. I am not even sure if it is an official term or just one I have coined to describe my children and the needs I have as a parent. You see, I have a child that I love and adore. I see all his awesomeness and his greatness, yet I struggle to help him show the rest of the world just how awesome he can be. He needs me a lot. He needs a of help and support to be the best and honestly I need a lot of help to be the best parent I can to him.

I often find myself feeling guilty when I say I am a “special needs parent” because while I know that is where I fit in and that my child’s needs are special and different than the typical support given to most children, I just don’t feel worthy of the title (but that is a rant for a whole other day).

To me, parenting a high needs child encompasses the gammet of behaviors and needs a child has that might not really fall into any one category and yet make parenting a little more difficult then you ever thought it was going to be. This could include children with multiple official diagnosis or it could just mean you have a strong willed child. Whatever the case, this term is not meant to divide, it is meant to help others find their way when they feel like they just can’t go any more.

Here are some of the places I find myself when I am at a loss for how to help my child.
