Teenage son having a hard time
My son is 13 and has CP. He attends a mainstream school and uses a wheelchair. He has become increasingly distressed about seeing other students'just walking around' and not having to deal with what he deals with. The other night he talked about me, my husband and my older son as being lucky because we don't have to either. His sadness about this is affecting his school time, he's leaving lessons and also his free time which recently has been evenings of crying. He really resents the appointments he has too. What can be done to support him?
