Parents raising a child with special needs want to equip their child with the skills and abilities necessary to live the most independent life possible. But actually accomplishing this can be difficult. Learning to empower a child with strength, dignity, responsibility, and independence is a daunting task for parents struggling to understand and cope with the special needs of their child.
In Empowering Your Child Who Has Special Needs, Debbie Goodwin helps parents identify enabling or guilt-based attitudes and actions that trap the child and themselves in unhealthy co-dependencies. As the mother of a daughter with special needs, she understands first-hand the struggles and frustration that come with this unexpected responsibility. Based on the belief that God's truth is a freeing reality, Goodwin develops empowering strategies to help parents actualize God's plan for them and their child. Empowering Your Child Who Has Special Needs invites the parents of children with special challenges to make the journey to discover how God's plan will "give you hope and a future."
