06-19-2014: Parenting the “Challenging” Child

Dealing with Mental Health and Other Parenting Challenges


It really does take a Village to rear a child, yet, when that child exhibits behavior or physical differences from what we consider the norm – the Village has a tendency to exile the child and the parents.  How can we support those families and bring them back into community?

Our guests on the show are Debra Watson Islam of Gabriel’s Horn Foundation and Trent DeFrates – two parents who have come to understand this subject first hand.

You are welcome to join the conversation on June 19, 2014, at 7pm CST – live online  or dial in at 347-237-4648 (press 1 if you’d like to speak with the host or guest).
