She posted about her daughter wanting to find some online friends and I had a thought. (Freaky, I know! ) As parents, this board is such a great thing. Information, understanding, support, adult conversation, laughs....we get everything here. But what about our kids? easy child, difficult child...doesn't matter although the first thing that popped into my mind was for the easy child's. We as parents have a hard time finding friends who can understand what we go through. I imagine it's just as tough for the easy child's to find friends who can understand what THEY go through. And for the difficult child's, a lot of times, our kids have a hard time making and keeping friends. Maybe online would be a good way for them to connect. How hard would it be to set up a seperate board similar to ours but for the kids? And, for that matter, what do you all think about it? I realize that a lot of our kids, both easy child and difficult child, have restrictions/time limits for internet usage but do you think this would be something they would be interested in for the time they do have? I just think that something like this could be a great outlet for them. For the easy child's, they can connect with other kids who are living with a difficult child and actually get their frustrations and how it affects their lives. For the difficult child's...maybe they can encourage each other or use their own board as a place to express the things they are scared to talk about to people who aren't in a similar situation. Know what I mean?? So....what do you think?
