snow day!

Anyone else out there celebrating a snow day today?

I was already driving to work when I got the call that school was cancelled due to the weather.
I know there are some very excited kids out there (including my own)!

i am a parent in denial...

Do you know a parent in denial?

I talk to a lot of parents everyday!
How many you ask?  Probably 10-25.
I'm guessing- I should really keep track one day because the
actual number might be even more!

Anyway... there are times when I talk to a parent in denial.
This denial could be related to a number of issues their child has.
A few examples include:
  1. grades
  2. attendance
  3. friend choices
  4. clothing choices
  5. overall choices
  6. child health complaints
The list could go on and on-Surely you're thinking of a few things right now :)

It can be very frustrating when someone so close to a potentially dangerous situation
can't seem to see accept what is actually happening.

Does being too emotionally close the situation make the reality blurred?

I recently read an article related to parents in denial.

You can read the article too

 "Not My Kid: when parents are in denial

I was able to relate to the article because of a 
situation I was recently involved with at school.

Denial is not helping your child :(

I also wrote another I AM poem!

Can you related to any of this?

I would love to hear from you :)

Dr. Seuss .... free printable poem

I stumbled upon this Dr. Seuss poem on Pinterest
If you're a speech path (or know one) I think it would be worth
your time to check out this mother-daughter speech blog!
I enjoyed what I read :)
Anyway, with all of the changes surrounding
school nursing in IL, I found this poem quite time appropriate!
I've been thinking about IEPs for the last several months and
have been creating some forms to use for medical reviews.
As soon as I have them ready I will share them.
I made the poem into a cute 8 1/5 x 11 free printable-
right click, save, and print :)
I didn't write the poem, just created the cute printable.
Feel free to share it, print it, pin it,
and comment if you like it!
Thanks for reading!
You can also order your very own spiral notebook here!
Perfect for keeping all of your IEP information
for a school year neat and organized!
