I’m not stressed anymore.

That is the turning point in feeding therapy as a therapist. When a parent comes to the sessions less stressed. When they are less stressed they become my partner in figuring out ways to help their child. When they become that partner, it makes my life easier because it make the child and the family lives easier. There is no battle. There is listening, observing, and problem-solving. Priorities are made and parents feel that their child is a family member. Now parents are able to listen to the issues at hand, be it physical issues or sensory issues. They are more willing to try and fail and try again. Therapy in general is not a cure but a way to guide someone to their greatest potential. Stress and blame do not help in the journey.
