Publisher's Synopsis

Do you feel like a bad parent because you are overwhelmed by the challenges of raising a special needs child? Are you struggling to handle your child's educational needs, behavioral challenges, meltdowns, and temper tantrums? Are you finding it difficult to control emotions like anger, resentment, fear, and self-pity? Do you feel trapped, lonely, and misunderstood?


If so, you might be a parent in crisis.


John E. Goralski, an award-winning journalist and photographer, explores his lifelong journey of self-discovery as a single father of an autistic child. His unique ability to combine his real-life experience and education with introspective thought-analysis, helps provide a smart and creative road map for special needs families.


This book offers a first-hand look into what it feels like to be an overwhelmed parent, offering valuable insights into the unique insecurities, social problems, and obstacles that must be overcome by special needs families, and exploring the way his family navigated communication barriers, divorce and separation, public education, vacations, puberty, love, and even the death of close family and friends.


Whether you have a special needs family member or are struggling to handle difficult life situations, this book will open your eyes to a new way of thinking. Inevitably, you will learn how to better deal with crisis, and find your peace and purpose.
