For those beautiful people who follow our blog, you would know I had a mini break down a few weeks about one of my children. This child has a few learning challenges and as her mum I knew I could not change this. All I wanted to do was protect this child and help them understand that they learn differently from their friend but that is OK. Their brain works in a different way – that’s all.
This child had never really asked me about being different until last week. They were frustrated with school and everything that was happening. This child was angry and couldn’t understand why they were being punished (of course they were not being punished, just finding things harder).
So I explain to my child how the brain works and I compared it to a filing cabinet. After my explanation on how they learn different to others but will get there in the end, my child appeared happy with my answer. When I used this same explanation when catching up with friends, they commented how easy it was to understand my message and children like my child would benefit from hearing this too.
So check out my video and see for yourself. Sorry if it is a bit rough but trying to find a few minutes peace is hard in this house:
