Incontinence Care: 5 Ways to Help Your Parent with Incontinence

When you're born, your parent is your lifeline. They feed you, burp you, change you; you're completely dependent on their care. Then, as you grow older, you become more and more autonomous and independent of your parents, and it's a very exciting time. Your parent is still the invincible lifeline that guided you through the beginning of your life, but then things start to change. Your parents grow older, and they begin to show signs of their increasing age. It can start as small things - needing reading glasses, forgetting where they put the remote, asking for a hand to get up out of a chair, etc. However, as your parent transitions into their older years, you may have to find a caregiver for them.

Moms vs. Potty Training: Challenges & Solutions For Autism Parents

If you’ve had a toddler in your life you know all about the dreaded potty training stage. But when you have a child with special needs, this can become a little more of a challenge.
When we first got Oliver’s autism diagnosis, we knew we would have our own set of obstacles but no one really prepared us for potty training. We didn’t know that children with autism tend to have a harder time learning to use the bathroom. This can be for a number of reasons like avoiding the toilet because it’s too loud, not liking the change in routine, getting stuck on repetitive behaviors like flushing the toilet over and over, and many more. All of these things can make it more difficult to learn to use the bathroom independently.
