Handicapped children often require more attention then non-handicapped kids. They have a lot more to deal with in order to develop stability and emotional maturity. This puts big demands on parents and, as a dad, you need to be prepared to be there for them often. You may no longer have time for golf games or drinks with buddies or too many late nights at the office. This places conflicting priorities on you that you need to balance. Remember, in that balancing act, to make time for yourself - this may mean a change in what you do as you may not have time for golf, etc. Give you child as much as you can, but balance to give yourself what you need.
