November has us feeling especially thankful. This is for all of you parents and guardians out there. No tips or tools today...just thanks. Lots, and lots, and LOTS of thanks! There isn’t enough recognition given to you; the caretakers, the advocates, the bridge builders, dream encouragers, transportation providers, IEP Meeting note takers, scaffolders...the many roles you serve. Sure, there’s Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, even Grandparent’s Day, and if there isn't already, there most certainly SHOULD be a guardian day...but your role is so much bigger than any day of thanks can begin to sum up. Thank you for seeking out, supporting, problem solving, empowering, and just being there. Thank you for doing your best to give to your sons and daughters confidence and a strong foundation to reach for their goals. Thank you for stepping in, and then learning to step back...how hard that can be. All that you do takes great strength, drive, and a deep passionate purpose. Your purpose is great. Your child is your greatest gift for our future. Thank you for this incredible gift.
