RAISING A BLIND CHILD:

RAISING A BLIND CHILD

Introduction:

Introduction Raising a blind baby may seem hopelessly difficult at first. For most parents, this isn’t something they expected or were prepared for. It is important to the visually impaired child that he/she feel "accepted" within the family. Being treated "like the other kids" can help build this feeling of security. The child's self-image and self-esteem are closely related to how he/she perceives his/her value within the family. Nurturing parents, regardless of socioeconomic status, are good for all children, but crucial to visually impaired children. There are Schools for blind in bangalore to make special care for Visually impaired kids.

FIND SUPPORT:

FIND SUPPORT The most important thing to do at this stage is find someone who understands what you are going through and can offer relevant advice . Enjoy every minute, no matter what! Relax; Never forget you know your child best; Ask yourself if your concern now is going to matter when your child is an adult. It’s going to be ok… Don’t try to “fix” every problem. Take life one day at a time and enjoy every minute. Give yourself a break now and then. A sense of humor is a must!
