Welcome to our new Parenting Children with Health Issues blog! We are so excited to begin blogging about the joys and challenges of raising a child with medical issues, chronic illness, disabilities, and other special needs.
Foster Cline, MD is a child psychiatrist, co-founder of the popular Love and Logic parenting approach, and now a (proud) great-grandpa! Lisa Greene is the mom of two children with cystic fibrosis, a parenting educator and certified parent coach.
We have teamed up to bring you new ideas, tools and tips for raising children with special healthcare needs. We also work with other professionals and expert parents who, like Lisa, have been educated by the "school of hard knocks." Our message to you is one of hope. You can do it!
As we travel around the country- and in fact, the world- doing workshops, we meet so many interesting people and hear their stories. And that's what we will bring to you here- stories and observations from others who are walking a similar path.
No matter what the illness or disability might be, our journeys have many things in common. With this blog, we will attempt to weave each of these golden threads into a tapestry of wisdom and hope.
We look forward to getting to know you and sharing our joys and trials as we wander down the path of day to day living, loving, and coping.
