The Blessing of a Skinned Knee is my favorite mainstream parenting book, bar none! You have to extrapolate for special kids. In fact, I asked Wendy Mogel, once about a particular topic in the book in regard to a special needs child, and she told me that it didn’t apply in that circumstance. So you can’t follow everything in the book to the letter. But Mogel’s wisdom on empowering independence is worth the price of admission!
The Blessing of a B Minus: Using Jewish Teachings to Raise Resilient Teenagers is more wisdom from a master.
