Coping with the emotional strain of having a child with down syndrome
I have a 3 year old son with down syndrome. We only got the diagnosis when he was 10 months old.
I sometimes get frustrated with the problems associated with my sons disability, which mainly revolves around his lack of communication. For example you tell him off for being naughty and you are never that sure he understands what you are telling him.
I hate becoming frustrated I feel like I am failing as a parent to cope with the challenges. After all it isn't his fault at all.
Has anyone had therapy to help them to come to terms with this situation. Maybe you never fully aspect this but just learn to adapt to a different life than you had expected.
Do anyone have any advice.
