Something came over me yesterday suddenly, out of no where. I should start a blog. A blog about being the Mama of an amazing 7 year old little girl, Ava. Ava is beautiful, highly intelligent, kind, considerate, an amazing big sister, articulate, creative, polite, sensitive and a dancer. Ava also has Bipolar Disorder.
Here you will find a day in the life of a parent who has a child with a mood disorder. Think mood disorders in children are nothing but B.S. and an excuse for poor parenting skills and spoiled children? Think again and continue to read.
My hope is that in the years to come this disorder will become accepted as a diagnosis in children and that other parents will not struggle for years to find out exactly what is wrong with their child. My hope is that other parents of bipolar children will find me here and know this: You are not alone.
