17 Quotes to Inspire Special Needs Parents in 2017

As we start 2017, special needs parents are presented with lots of teachable moments. Helping your child reflect on the past year and set goals for the new one is an opportunity to foster important life skills and values.

But what about you? How can you use the start of a new year to sharpen your own parenting skills and resolve to make 2017 the best year it can be for you and your family? Here are 17 quotes to keep you inspired and on track in 2017:

4.“Motherhood is about raising and celebrating the child you have, not the child you thought you would have.

11. “Autism … offers a chance for us to glimpse an awe-filled vision of the world that might otherwise pass us by.” – Colin Zimbleman

12. “Don’t worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.” – Robert Fulghum

13. “One of the great things that any community can do is not teach tolerance, but live tolerance, not talk respect, but live inclusivity.” – Michael Pritchard

14. “Nine tenths of education is encouragement.” – Anatole France

15. “Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” – Rita Pierson

16. “The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.” – Robert M. Hutchins

17. “If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.” – Antoine de St. Exupery
