I am a parent of a special needs kid who also happens to be a teenager. Some days it's hard to know whether I'm helping the special needs kid or the teenager. Some days it's both. I don't blog a lot about my child's special needs. It seems like it would be an invasion of her privacy as you can never really get rid of stuff on the world wide web and you have no idea when one day it's going to come back and bite you in the butt.
Regardless of special needs or not, today's teens have it hard and face an incredible amount of pressure. Not only are they preparing for their future, but they have to make it through some of the most awkward times of their lives. Throw in hormonal changes and it's no wonder they are over-stressed and tried.
I thought I'd share some of the essential oils I use to support my teenager.
