Parents Support Group

Some time ago, when I was still working at the only one ABA school in Australia, I had a meeting with one of my little friend’s mum. We were talking about her son’s behavior at home: how to make his life easier, more supportive and that he will not forget to have fun as well! I was looking at mum’s face and I let myself to ask how is she doing? And you know what? We have spent another couple of hours talking about her feelings and forgetting her son for at least this time! After that conversation I realized how it is important to talk about parents’ inner state. I definitely agree that exercising helps to reveal stress and feel more confident, but what about talking, gathering together and sharing good and bad experiences with people who are in the same shoes?

Furthermore, my very close family member, who has an autistic 25 years old boy, found really good friends only because they started to attend parent support meetings. After all these years they are still gathering together in order to share ideas, experience and definitely to get advice from professionals. I asked her why did she start to attend those meetings? Firstly, she wanted to know how to deal with her son’s challenging behavior and, for my surprise, she didn’t want to feel lonely! Moreover, she still attends the meetings and she also say: “Sharing good moments about my son makes other parents not just smile and laugh but also to believe”!
