Helping Children Celebrate Their Differences ~ Guest Maria Forrest
Be You Parenting with Mary Dravis-Parrish
Most kids recognize they are different before we adults think they do. Whether a young person has ADHD, dyslexia, is on the autism spectrum or whatever else may make them “different”, they will likely figure out what sets them apart from the “crowd” pretty quickly.
When parents know how to help their child cope and celebrate their difference, the child can once again feel good about who they are and how being different is more than okay, it’s magical. My guest, Maria Forrest, will be here to share what she has learned about helping kids who are different cope and how her work is dedicated to celebrating differences.
Maria Forrest earned a master’s degree in Early Childhood while expecting twins and after teaching 100’s of spunky kindergartners. Her best credentials are raising four resourceful children, yet she’s made her share of mistakes. She has written four books related to children. Her role model is Mr. Rogers and his social impact with the Neighborhood. She is passionate about helping children live their dreams which comes through in her most recent book project- The Land of In-Between. https://amzn.to/2lqvDYn firstname.lastname@example.org
