As we study psychology, there are many things we are told about child development. Positive reward systems bring positive behaviors from our children. We are told to love them unconditionally and spend time nurturing all of their physical, emotional, mental, and educational skills. But is there more? What makes our disabled children resilient? We see children who persevere with their illnesses, and they go on to do great things. I personally know a man who was born without a foot - he went on to be a prosthetics specialist. He works every day with people like himself who need limbs. He is the best doctor to do something like this because he knows the pain, handicaps, and challenges that his patients face on a daily basis.
We see disabled individuals go on to be successful in life, love, and careers. But we wonder how to get them there. How do we create these resilient kids?
I searched until I found the answer. I wanted more than anything for my son to be one of the children who went on to make a life of his own. I didn't want him to sit around feeling sorry for himself or feeling as though he didn't fit in. If there was a way, I was willing to go the extra mile with him to find it. In this audiobook I want to share the answer with you.
It isn't difficult or hard to achieve, but naming the thing that will help you to strive for it is half the battle. The more people I touch with this book and this theory, the better the chances that each child they touch will have the ability to overcome his or her struggles and become strong and resilient. We touch each life one at a time until they are all touched. We strive for greatness and goodness with this one concept, and the people we affect will be grateful to us for our efforts for the rest of their lives....
