Parents of children with chronic illnesses or disabilities are at a higher risk of parenting stress. Caregiving can put a physical and emotional strain on parents, as well as healthy siblings and even extended relations like grandparents. Taking care of a child with drug-resistant epilepsy is a high risk factor
for parenting stress. And, even if the child is seizure-free after epilepsy surgery, parenting stress never normalizes
to the level of parents of neurotypical children.
These webinars are free to you and scheduled for April 29 (4 PM PST) , May 6 (5 PM PST) and May 13 (5 PM PST) and can be viewed afterwards.
