I will fight until my last breath

I will fight for my child until my last breath. I will continue to relentlessly explain, to you and anyone involved in my child’s life, how her academic, social and physical learning can be enhanced and extended. I will not give up.

Meaningful Connection with an Anxious Child

After an incredibly tough few weeks where Mie (7) has hidden in her mind more and more every day, I felt a sadness wash over me. I felt as if I had lost all connection with my beautiful child. I had reached the point of exhaustion.  We discussed as a family that I needed to... Continue Reading →

Keep me safe in your pocket

She started to freak out whilst watching herself in her mirror. I turned the... Continue Reading →
