  1. Hi Sarah -

    I am new to your website and I appreciate all of the information I have come across so far. I plan to take more time to read all of the articles.

    I am a mother of two very beautiful gifted children; a boy who is 10 and a girl who is 7. Social/emotional skills, their happiness and self esteem has always been my focus however I would like to read about how other parents deal with the stresses that it may cause in their marriage.

    For one friend, it ended in divorce when they could not come to an agreement on the best choices for their teenage son. I am sure that wasn't the reason but perhaps the years of trying to understand and parent their son accumulated and this was the final straw. Who really knows but them. Still their story scared me.

    It definitely causes stress for our marriage. How could it not? It can at times be overwhelming. We read, attend conferences (like SENG), and advocate for our children. That is not hard to do, we love our children and want the best for them. The advocating and getting nowhere or trying to teach social courtesies that just won't sink in with my son - that is frustrating, defeating and we feel burnt out.

    I know, the airplane moto, "put your mask on before assisting others" however, that is easier said than done. How do other parents not burn out?

  2. My son is very much gifted when it comes to numbers and math and hes doing algebra equations. Me and my wife are split so it is difficult for him but we both encourage him, but we don't want to push him, and that's what we are afraid of. I like what you have here and what others have said.
