Clarification

So I just wanted to clarify a few things to the ass of people that want to bash I was the one that wrote this….

“I’m a single mom of 2 young kids and looking how to go about getting respite help my oldest has behaveral issus and my younger one is starting to pick up on her actions I have no help and haven’t had a chance to sit and breath in over a year and I have no one.

I’m just trying to look into respite care and don’t even know where to start please no bashing just trying to get some help to keep my sanity”

My kids are age 5 and 2 and no I’m not going to send them to boot camp my kids have been threw more then a lot of adults have been, we have had a rough 2 years and now that I’m trying to get everything back in track for me and my kids I thank them every day because if it wernt for them I would have given up alone time ago they are my world and my rock. My daughter has underlining issues with our past that are causing her behavioral issue yes I blaim myself I feel like I’ve done my kids wrong even tho what we have been threw was unpreventable, my kids are strong and very bright I wouldn’t change them for the world but I am struggling with ptsd, depression and anxiety and because of this I feel overwhelmed at the best of times and just need some help…. the reason I’m looking for respite care just to give me a hand every once in a while to be able to breath and stop feeling like I’m drowning

So maybe next time before makeing stupid comments when you don’t know the Situation maybe think twice.

    If you contact the yWCA they will be able to give you a list of agencies they provide respite for children. I do respite for disabled adults but we don’t with children through where I do mine.
    I cannot even imagine how hard it must be for you and I commend you in asking for help.

  3. Don’t look for answers on Facebook

    • Yea i think google is more nice then facebook lol

    • Serge Derhousoff or a call to a government agency lol

    • Garry Johnson ok first of asking online for some numbers is someone’s way of reaching out to a wide variety of people who may have dealt with the same issue.Calling a government agency is not always the answer. Why is this not allowed to be asked? Maybe she’s called places and gets people on the other end who have no idea where to look or what agencies provide those needs. There is no need to be a jerk about it.

    • This^ there was a traumatic event with my son and I called MULTIPLE government agencies, and wasn’t able to find help. I then turned to Facebook and found the help that my son needed. Facebook can be more helpful, and you have people who may have gone through a similar situation, who may be able to help you to point you in the right direction, better than any government agency could.

    Try to block out the noise of the trolls. The internet can be a cruel place, but it can be wonderful too, as evidenced by all of the helpful comments. Sorry you had hurtful, thoughtless comments.

  6. Ok maybe I’m confused but isn’t respite for a break? Is that what you’re looking for or someone who can help with your daughter?

  7. I recommend calling the Kids Kottage crisis line … 780-944-2888

    They offer 24-72 hour respite as well as over the phone parental support

    It’s a truly awesome program

  8. depending what the underlying issues are that your daughter is experiencing, maybe FSCD can help?

  9. Quit trying to defend your actions and start taking action. I mean this sincerely. Call the numbers the helpful posters have provided. You owe no one a explanation.

  10. I posted a couple of things for you as well but am not sure if they are appropriate for your particular situation. I have stopped sending things to Shoutout Edmonton to post anonymously as the comments can be really hateful and I don’t need that kind of negativity. But take it with a grain of salt – usually the people that make the negative comments are miserable themselves and want to make others feel worse than they do.

  11. Alberta mental health can help with counciling for you and the kids. It’s another option to look at as well.

  12. Pm me and I can get you some solid advice and numbers to call.

  13. I provide respite and left info on your previous post. 1st get an assessment.dx then get got assistance t2201 got disability..provides funding. 2nd fscd…no dx they won’t even support so ensure you have documented proof. 3rd there are a LOT OF respite services available.

  14. Kidz Cottage doesn’t accept special needs and all these other programs have waiting lists for workers and you need referrals, Dr.’s, Pediatricians, etc. not just a day of I’m fed up, it takes a very long time to set up these needs! FSCD is a great program, but takes a while.

    What happened to parents being parents and raising their kids on their own? Serious question. I’ve seen so many posts about ppl that have these problems with kids that can’t even write yet!? Be a goddam parent for more than five years ffs! Your children are going to develop right before your eyes faster than you can imagine when they are young!

  16. Apply for FCSD. They have amazing programs and funding to help with behaviour need kiddos.

  18. I am sorry that people were not nice or helpful- ignore all that BS because it does not matter –not one bit.
    What do you some ignorant strangers on Facebook know about you and your children & your life? Nothing! Take the good advice that was listed and given on both your posts and ignore everything else. Until people walk a mile in your shoes they do not understand what you’ve been through & you do not have to explain or justify yourself to anyone! I wish you the best of luck moving forward❤️

  21. EXACTLY!!! I needed respite care for my daughter as well. But never received it. We got through it.
    I truly hope that you are able to get all of the support that you need!

  22. I have two special needs kids who have been with FSCD for years. PM me if you would like. Sometimes, having someone to talk to unbiased really helps. As far as respite goes….you can try calling the office directly and ask what you need – whether its a dr’s referral. It was our pediatrician that suggested it. We have diagnosis’ of OCD, ADHD for the one, and Autism for the other. Ignore anyone that has anything negative to say. No one understands what its like to have special needs children, and try and do it all on your own. I can tell these insensitive people something….I can’t spank the OCD, and Autism out of my children. Learning to understand how their mind works, and then finding out what disciplinary tactics work for each child is the only way you will get anywhere, and its not corporal punishment. As soon as I understood exactly what I was up against, I was able to properly parent. Hold strong! You got this hun! Looks like you can apply right on line. http://www.humanservices.alberta.ca/disability-services/14855.html

    Ive been in the drowning phase myself. Buy I saw the last post and this one and people r showing u many options which seems u r ignoring for the more exciting negative people. Call kids kottage. 7809442888 I suggested Norwood child and parent link centre 7804713737. Somehow u r still here focusing on your story not your delivery. Make the calls that u desperately need…cuz shoutout has given u many viable options. Even from parents who have been drowning before!!!!!

  24. KARA house was s godsend for me years ago. I could drop the kids off for 3-4 hours and knew they were safe. Parenting solo is hard enough without all the judgies

  25. I definitely recommend going through Alberta health. it is basically a jumping off point for everything. you have to have medical reports done in order to get needs based help for both yourself and your child and a doctor is the place to start. they will refer you and/or your child to any additional specialists etc. those specialists will refer you for various programs bla bla bla. it’s definitely a process but it IS doable. I have a now 15 year old daughter who has a severe form of ADHD coupled with ODD and it has been a challenge for sure but with the right diagnoses and the right care after diagnoses it does get better! hang in there momma! you can do this
