#WonderfulWednesday: The challenges of positive relationships for parents and carers

This week's wonderful Wednesday share is from Being Toby's Mummy and is called 'The challenges of positive relationships for parents and carers' supporting Mental Health Awareness Week last week.

It's a lovely post that gives some great ideas on how to have with external relationships when you have extra stresses like having a child with additional needs. Being Toby's Mummy picks up on some lovely points.

This post recognises the difficultly additional needs mums sometimes have when taking to parents of those without.   I called in dinosaur and kitten chat, where despite talking about our kids, I found it hard to relate to their parenting.

It felt like they were easing kittens whilst I was busy fighting with dinosaurs. Don't get me wrong, I can roar with the beat of them, but that didn't seem to help in forging relationships at playgroups.

It also raises the point about having time for ourselves, which can be really difficult. I've nearly cried a few times when my hubby and I have had the opportunity to do something that's just us.  It's so valuable.

This great post, as part of Mental Awareness Week, highlights taking care of ourselves and these relationships and that's a wonderful thing to share.  If you haven't read it yet, visit it here.
