Gift Ideas For Kids & Teens With Disabilities

The holidays are such a magical time of year! Most people enjoy spending time with families, hearing the Christmas music playing in the stores and the general happiness and positive energy people are tossing around like confetti. For some parents the holidays can be a bit more of a challenge and not because of our grinch attitudes or dislike of the season. The holidays are different for some parents because the holidays are different for our kids. As a mother of three beautiful kids, a girl and two boys (both boys have disabilities) I know how unusual it can be to help your kids enjoy the season as much as others. Our oldest boy has ADHD and struggles to complete tasks or enjoy quiet, calm activities like others his age. Our youngest has Asperger’s which makes it a struggle for him to enjoy the wide range of emotions so many kids express this time of year. The holidays are not always easy for them simply because they experience things differently and don’t enjoy the same activities. Th

How to Keep Your Relationship Strong



No relationship is plain sailing. Regardless of how much you love your partner, it requires a mutual effort on both parts to make your connection strong through willingness to make commitments or even make small changes to ensure your relationship stands the test of time. 


Hollywood romantic comedies may give the illusion of perfection when it comes to relationships, and the reality is that you’ll more than likely be faced with hundreds of hurdles along the way that need to be overcome to make your relationship last. 


Don’t put your relationship on the backburner. Try and make some changes today to keep your relationship strong and healthy and enhances the chances of long-term success.


Make sure you’re on the same path

 

Many relationships break down because they discover their partner’s future goals are not aligned with their own. Make sure you spend time each day discussing what’s important to you and where you’d like your relationship to go. If you have always loved the idea of marriage, sit down together and make plans as to how you’d like the big day to play out. This could be discussing the style of ceremony you’d prefer, your dream location, and of course, the perfect method of transport to get to and from the venue.

Spend time away from each other

 

It may seem as though you’re taking a counteractive approachbut spending time apart can make your relationship much healthier. When you’re in each other’s pockets on a 24/7 basis, their annoying habits may play on your nerves and cause unnecessary arguments to break out. Regardless of how much time you wish to spend with your partner, you need time apart for your own personal developmentIn doing so, you’ll find yourself rejuvenated and less triggered by the small things which will make for a more positive relationship.


Be supportive

 

There are times in the relationship when your partner may be upset and stressed, and it’s your duty to be there for them and show support. You may find it difficult to know what to say or do to help resolve their issues, but your physical presence and care are usually enough to put them in a calmer state of mind and find ways to resolve their issues. 

On the other hand, be vulnerable to your partner when you’regoing through a tough time. Be honest, express your fears and concerns, and always ask for what you require from themIt takes bravery to show vulnerability, but it will certainly allow you to gain an insight into whether your partner has your back.


Remember the little things

 

It’s the little things that can make all of the difference in reminding your partner how much you love and appreciate them. Very often, couples become so comfortable with one another that they forget to show their partner just how much they care. This could be as simple as gifting a bouquet of flowers, giving a hug, or organizing a date night.


Don’t expect it to be sunny all the time

 

No relationship is perfect all of the time. If that’s what you expect, you’re only setting yourself up for dissatisfaction. You’re both only human, after all, so you will disagree and be faced with obstacles on a daily basis. However, it’s down to you as a couple to work through these issues to become stronger.
