Taking Care of Yourself
Parenting a teen with AS is a difficult and, at times, exhausting task, so it’s important that you make a conscious effort to take care of yourself. Some things you can do include:
- Make sure you get sufficient sleep and rest
- Make time for yourself
- Surround yourself with supportive people
- Join a support group geared towards parents of children or teens with ASD
Many teens with Asperger’s Syndrome become adults with relatively happy, fulfilling lives despite the challenges they face daily. Getting your teen help now will help ensure a bright future for him or her.
