Hi! I’m Sally. I am a parent of five children who range in age from 9 years old to 30 years, and yes I know that’s a huge age range and gap! I’ve been working on this parenting thing for a long time, and trust me, I still have lots to learn. I started out parenting as a single mom; and I eventually met a great guy and had two babies in a short span. I have also worked full time and attempted to balance young kids and a career.
At some point during my crazy parenting journey I went back to school to train as an Educational Assistant. I’ve spent lots of time working and volunteering with Kids with Special Needs. I have also been a Foster Parent for about 17 years. I usually care for babies and I’ve been fortunate enough to adopt a child.
I’ve parented kids with special needs, learning disabilities and emotional/psychological disorders. There have been doctor’s appointments and countless school meetings and support groups. I am sure I’ve made lots of mistakes but I know I have learned some great tricks and coping skills along the way.
I am looking forward to becoming a grandparent in the very near future and I can’t wait to experience this new aspect of parenting. I know I will have lots to learn from my daughter about not spoiling her child. Can’t wait!
I have lots of parenting experience but I am constantly learning new ways to connect with my kids and ways to enjoy being a parent. I don’t think I have ever met a perfect parent and I know I’ll never be one. ???? I’d love to chat and together we can find ways to be great parents with happy kids!
