In our house, we have children with special needs.
How do you talk to them about the unknown?
Mom is looking at the possibility of getting a different job. If that happens, she would be living in a different city four days a week. Through the school year. This would be a huge adjustment for our family.
We talked with most of the kids about the possibility today, and while they didn’t welcome the news, the did express dissatisfaction with the idea.
There are hugs benefits to a change. Medical benefits for one. I am on disability, and not earning a lot. So it is mostly her income that keeps us afloat. Medical bills, Medicare doesn’t cover everything.
With the boys, being in a larger city, as opposed to our small town would be of benefit to our boys. More opportunities for learning, more opportunities for community based supports.
