Forwarded from Shelley Cook’s post on SLN Facebook group-
Glass children are healthy children who have brothers or sisters with special needs. They are typically emotionally neglected, experience severe pressure to be problem-free and perfect, take on parental responsibilities within the family at a young age and have an overwhelming need to make others happy. All this while receiving little nurturing and support in their development years.
You have the chance to make a difference in the life of a glass child. Will you help me spread the message? Send this, Tweet this, Facebook it to parents who have special needs and healthy children, to adult glass children, to pastors and rabbis who have glass children in their congregations and to teachers who have glass children in their classrooms. The more who hear = the more who can make an impact.
