Children with Special Needs

December 24 2009 Children with Special Needs Newsletter

Here's the latest article from the Special Needs Children site at BellaOnline.com.

Positive Psychology and Childhood Disability
Positive Psychology suggests ways of supporting and enhancing mental wellness in children and adults coping with increasing daily stress or anxiety. Human rights activist Norman Kunc explains Abraham Maslow's well-researched theory of the hierarchy of needs as it relates to our families.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year ~ Happy Holidays from my house to yours! No matter what the weather or family dynamics as we plough through the end of 2009, I hope you find great joy in life as it is right now and abundant hope for 2010.

I don't have packages wrapped (or all of them found, I bet) or our tree decorated (the plan was to do that on Thanksgiving weekend...) but I wanted to send out this newsletter to all the people with whom I feel connected through the web page and our shared hopes and dreams (worries and pride) for our sons and daughters and/or people with special needs who deserve all the best life has to offer. I wish I could find a gift basket for each of you with virtual two hour naps and time for a warm conversation with a good friend every day.
