    Treating Emotional and Behavioral Disorders in Children and Adolescents
    By Shanna Shulman, Henry Ireys, and Stephanie Peterson

    An excerpt:

    Chronic emotional and behavioral disorders take a toll on
    family life as well. Compared with parents of children with
    other chronic conditions, parents of children with emotional
    or behavioral disorders say they spend more time
    providing and coordinating care for their children, miss
    more hours of work, and are more likely to stop working
    because of their child’s condition (Figure 1).

    I don't doubt this at all....and it's amazing to see us all in "print". I think we are ALL suffering right along with our children and get very little least without begging and pleading and praying.
