066 | How to Find the Right Babysitter Pt. 2

In this episode, we are going to be talking about how to let others care for your special needs child. The reason why this is an important topic is because as special needs moms, we wear all the hats. We take care of our children, the house, our marriage, other kids, work, cooking, cleaning, errands, doctor’s appointments, and the list goes on. I understand that not everyone has the means to hire a nanny or babysitter all the time. So, READ MORE

I think one of the most important things as a special needs parent is to have some balance in your life. A lot of times when we are the sole person for our kiddos, we have no space to do anything else. The more you do that, the more your kids get dependent on you to do everything and it will get harder to step away for even a few hours. So, in this episode, I will be answering all READ MORE

I am starting to change things up on the podcast. I wanted to start doing some Q&A style episodes because I have been talking about so many topics I find valuable, but there are so many questions I get that I just don't even cover. So, I thought for a while I would just answer your questions, anything you are struggling with, going through, or trying to make sense of. If you have a question, go to asdparenting.com/question or jodywarshawsky.com/question READ MORE

What This Episode is About In this episode, it's going to be a little different. I have had the idea of adding a second episode a week. I get a lot of questions from people, a lot of questions that are really really good and important to me and to the special needs community, so I really want to discuss them with all of you. In this episode, and for future Q&A's, I am just going to answer questions. YOUR READ MORE

Why I am Still Talking About Acceptance  This is my favorite episode, even though I recorded it more than two years ago and it took me about four or five months before I even decided to publish it. I had recorded a bunch of episodes and I never ever told anybody that I had started a podcast. I had thirty downloads for all eight episodes and I was so nervous and so excited. Now it has been a couple years, READ MORE

Grieving The Child You Thought You Would Have  The reason why I started this podcast is because I had such a radical transformation after grieving the child I thought I was going to have with my daughter Remy. I struggled and I felt alone. I didn’t know how I was going to be the kind of mother that Remy needed, and I didn't understand why she had special needs. How could God do this to a child? Why did God READ MORE

Why You Shouldn’t Skip Bargaining  I am really excited about today's episode. I know I say that a lot, but I mean it every time. This is a previously recorded episode and it's one of the first ones I've ever done. Today’s topic is ALL about bargaining. The word bargaining is confusing for a lot of people and whenever we talk about the stages of grief, we don't even know what it really is and want to move onto the READ MORE

Why Acceptance is Necessary This episode is a heavy topic, but I am really excited about it. It is a previously recorded episode and it's one of the first one I've ever done. I wanted to play it because the discussion of the stages of grief still rings true for any mom or any parent who is still processing through a diagnosis for their child. If we don't process through it, the whole journey is nothing but pain, struggle, and READ MORE

Why This Episode is Important This episode is one of the most important episodes of this entire podcast. What I know now is that when you are raising a child with special needs, there is a part of you that has to die. And I know that sounds a little crazy, but what I mean is that raising a child with special needs requires you to change. It requires you to be a better version of yourself. Through change comes READ MORE

This topic is not comfortable to talk about. It's something I've gone back and forth with deciding if I wanted to talk about for a while, but I know how important it is to have this discussion. I am currently in the middle of a season of depression. And I just want to start out by saying, I am not a doctor or a psychologist or a counselor. I am a mom of four kids, and one of them has READ MORE
