The second I met Kara Ryska, I knew I wanted to share her wisdom with you.  Kara is a Life Coach that specializes in helping mothers that are raising children with special needs. The mother of a child with a brain tumor and secondary diagnosis, Kara knows first hand what it is like to manage all of the doctors’ appointments, therapies, school meetings, special instructions for child care, and the like. Her own experiences led her to her career as a Life Coach , and talking to her is like drinking a warm cup of hot chocolate! 

In today's episode Kara and I talk about why it is so important for parents of children with disabilities to care for themselves . Kara describes it from the standpoint of the mind, the body, and the spirit. I promise you that you will not want to miss this episode, particularly as we conquer two of the most stressful weeks of the school year and the beginning of a new semester.
