These are just a few simple reminders for all of us out there who might need them:
Nobody in the world is just like you.
What works for you may not work for others.
Your way may not be the only way.
Your way may not be the best way. (This is a tough one.)
What is easy for you, may be virtually impossible for others.
Because when your child feels the need to inform you that her life has always been hard, especially when unstructured, that she is doing better this summer than any other, and follows up with: “Did you think life would miraculously become easy for me?” ... it may be time for some reminders.
