In this Parent Perspective, two parents, each with several children (some with special needs), talk candidly about the challenges of meeting each child's specific needs and maintaining balance, communication, and understanding within the family.
They share their parenting philosophies (such as celebrating each child's strengths) and describe the practical strategies they use to meet the needs of their disabled and non-disabled children alike.
