♥ ♥ Parenting with MS with Taunia Bowman ♥ ♥
Parenting these days is hard enough but when you get Multiple Sclerosis thrown in the mix, it’s that more challenging. I’m not going to ask you to discuss your problems because problems are sometime hurdles to high to overcome. I want you to be able to discuss you parenting challenges because those have solutions; sometimes it just takes someone impartial to help come to those solutions.
One thing I want to do is help you teach your kids about your MS. There are a lot of resources out there its just many people don’t know how to access them.

I am sending my 9 year old to the boys and girls club so you may want to see if they have one close to you. It's a great organization, he can play basketball, swim and even play video games. During school days they are open 3-8 M-F 10-5 Saturday. On school days off they are open 10-4 M-F. If you dont have one, how about the local Y or a rec center? Many of them, the Y especially has a sliding fee scale. I'm even going to go to the Y with him for swimming because its a great workout and ours has a chair to get me in and out of the water.
Do a google search for activities, get them involved in helping in the kitchen. When I think of other specifics I'll post them here. I'm also still looking for people for my April 28th show. Email me I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas.
