"Every child deserves an adult that will never give-up on them" Rita Pearson
Did you have a role model in your life, an adult that supported and inspired you? For a child to succeed in life they need someone who will invest time and energy into them. My role model was my 90 year old Grandmother, she made me grow-up believing I could go on to do great things. That I deserved good things to happen to me. She did this by focusing on my strengths and by making me feel that I was important.
Caring for a dyslexic child can be hard. They may need extra help with homework and to get organised for school. It can be tiring, along with the constant worry about if they are struggling at school. It can feel like you are not doing enough, this is when the guilt, negative thoughts creep in. To be able to be an adult champion for a child, it is important you look after yourself. You need to be relaxed, refreshed with good mental health to be able to give them the support they need.
