    My son has special needs and sometimes I feel at a loss not knowing what I can do for him. I’ve come across this great book called Parenting Children with Health issues.
    It’s really a wonderful book. The best thing about it, it has everything you need. At least for me. And if not, there’s an ask Dr.Cline section on her website which is really helpful.
    Hope to help another parent or two out because this really does help me.
