9 AM – 4 PM

What's It All About?

Parenting a child with ADD/ADHD and/or who is on the Autism Spectrum is challenging! Trying to manage his behavior at school and at home, plus acting as his tutor, advocate and caregiver places unreasonable stress on a mother’s energy and attention. And if she works or owns a business, as I do, it can seem virtually impossible to succeed on any front.

This retreat came into being, because I wanted to attend an event like this myself. I needed to know that I wasn’t alone in my struggles of raising a child who was different from his brother and his peers.

Cheryl and The Boys

I wanted to attend an event where the focus was on my needs, as a mother of a child with special needs. An event where I would feel free, if only for a few hours, from the constant feeling of frustration and overwhelm. Where I could gain a new perspective and learn skills to help me cope with the daily challenges.

More than anything, after being worn down for so long, I wanted to feel revived spiritually, renewed physically and restored emotionally.

Along my 14 year journey, I found some answers, met other mothers who faced similar circumstances, and started to feel more in control, centered and in better balance.

I'm not out of the woods yet, stress-wise. My son is 15 years of age and I have different concerns for him than I did when he was elementary and middle school. The difference is in how I respond to the stress. Today, I have a greater number of coping skills to draw upon than I did back then, and this helps lower my stress-responses as issues creep up.

 

Looking back over my journey, I wished that I had had the tool box of techniques and resources I have now. Maybe I wouldn't have yelled as much. Maybe I wouldn't have felt so guilty and inadequate as a parent. Maybe I would have done a few things differently. But then again, how could I when I hadn't yet acquired the knowledge?

 

If any of what you have read so far resonates with you and your situation, then you will want to attend this retreat. Join me Saturday, May 7th from 9 AM - 4PM. My intention is to share with you the resources I've learned and used to help regain and maintain my own spiritual, physical and emotional balance in hopes that they will serve you too.

There is truth in the saying,

You must take care of yourself first before you can adequately serve another.
