Ever wonder what it's like to parent a child with special needs? This book is a compilation of reflections I have had over the years, as I grew as a mom of a child with special needs. The main purpose of this book is two-fold; firstly, it is to give a glimpse into the lives of families who raise children with special needs - particularly for educators, medical professionals, case workers, law makers, and care providers. Secondly, it is to reach out to other families who have had similar experiences as I have, in order to give them hope, and validate their feelings as they travel on a similar journey.
Children used to be seen and not heard. Now they are the center of their parents' universe. We need to find a graceful middle way. Parents today seem skittish about asserting their parental authority. They indulge children's demands, tantrums, and endless negotiations for fear of hurting their children's feelings. Sadly, this is creating a generation of psychologically fragile kids, and parents are undermining the very self-esteem they are trying so earnestly to build. "Tiger mom," "helicopter parent," "the cool dad"—between these extremes lies a better way to raise thriving, well-adjusted children.

Seeds of rejection and abandonment took root and affected me in every area of my life and developed a defense mechanism that prevented me from trusting others.
Dr. Patricia Morgan boldly calls godly parents to raise their children to become future leaders. This important book points the way for determined parents who want to successfully raise children of promise for the 21st century.
Growing up in an economically disadvantaged environment, with divorced parents created a challenge as a child. From moving constantly, to losing her virginity in middle school, to becoming a teen mom, life just wasn’t easy. Being raised by a single struggling mom and becoming a single struggling mom at age 15, created many painful moments. Experiencing life without a father in the home and having a working mom, left a void that resulted in raising her own self. Without proper guidance, bad decisions were made especially in regard to men. From failure in every relationship from friendships, marriage, and even complications with family members, it was easy to feel neglected and forgotten. Nothing is better when all that negativity is turned into positivity. The only way to do so is to work on your inner self, face the truth, weather the storm, and learn to love yourself. The best outcome in life is becoming successful when you are underestimated. However, to get there, you must deal with some unwanted, unrevealed truths even if it hurts.
