Behind the Breakthroughs


Oct 8, 2019

In this episode Dr. Annette Nunez and Maylene Johnson chat with Becky Jones from the Instagram @parenting_special_needs_kids.  This amazing mother has two children on the spectrum and she shares her incredible journey filled with love, acceptance, and humor.  She started an Instagram to post funny memes that she creates in hopes of connecting with other families so they don't feel so isolated and alone. It is a page where there is no judgment and parents can relate and laugh at the situations that are happening in their day-to day lives.  Becky's motto is, "If you don't laugh you cry and laughter makes life a lot easier."

MINDSHIFT (takeaways)

  1. When you are going through hard times, take each day at a time, or each hour at a time. Don’t dwell on things.
  2. If you have a bad day leave it on that day, take a fresh start the next day.
  3. Don’t force your children to do things you think they should be doing. Do things that suit your family.
  4. Do things that make your child happy
