In My Child's Different Elaine Halligan has had the imagination and the wisdom to tell her story both as a mother and as someone with skills and training in parenting education. It is a mother's story told from the heart that many will identify with, and indeed learn many pearls of wisdom from.
I found the book hard to put down; it's as if you're sitting in Elaine's kitchen over a cup of tea - hearing just how hard it was to raise her special boy with his complex needs, and learning of his transformation into the remarkable young man he has turned out to be. Melissa Hood's commentary also provides bonus points of knowledge and practicality that any time-poor parent would crave.
I will be recommending My Child's Different to my clients, whether they have a -˜different' child or not. This book is simply a gem in the mountain of parenting advice out there.
