"Stop Judging Me!"

Six tips for surviving the ill-informed, all-knowing if-he- were-my-kid types.

5 Comments: "Stop Judging Me!"

  1. I have used and will continue to use all of these strategies. Being reminded that these are okay and effective strategies and the right thing to do for my child has done me a lot of good today. Thank you so very much. (And number 1 really, really works.)

  2. Thank you for writing this. I am just a parent and I haven’t been blessed with superpowers! My gifted child has attention issues but they “never” are the reason for poor grades. It takes so much out of me when I talk to his school. Great post!

    1. Thank you – and your comment came at just the right time for me. I spent yesterday advocating for my gifted/ adhd child of 15. Stay strong – repeat, repeat, repeat…..and know your stuff, mom. You ARE right – so don’t let them beat you down.

  3. Right on. Thanks for the great and honest post. So encouraging to me! I also have a kid who is twice exceptional. I have always said… “kids are not created equal and some kids are just harder to raise than others”… thank you for affirming this! All kids have their issues, no one is perfect. But some definitely are harder. Having my daughter has tested me to limits I never thought I’d have to go! But on the flip side, I do feel like she has brought out things in me that I’ve learned I have to work on myself. I know that I am a better parent because she is my challenging daughter. I can’t just skate through! I am sharing this article with a few friends who will appreciate it, too! Thanks again!

    1. Thank you! I’m glad it resonated…this post has sparked more dialogue and discussion than anything else I’ve written. I agree that the learning is endless…and quiet times – if you can find them – are a must to recharge. Warmly. Judy
