The Princess and The Prosthetic

Back to School

August 17, 2021 in Lifestyle, Warrior Princess - No Comments
As we all get into the back to school mode……
We want to remind you that in addition to the anxiety of starting school in person again, there’s the added stress that some families face–how are the kids going to interact with my disabled child?
Are they going to stare?
Are they going to point?
Are they going to whisper behind their hands?
Are their faces going to reflect their fear and in turn make my daughter’s heart break?
Are they going to laugh? Mock her because she’s different?
Or will it be more subtle–where she’s simply ignored or excluded because she has to move around the world differently than the other kids do?
Will I have to keep explaining the difference between special “treatment” and accessibility and inclusion?
I implore you.
Talk to your children about how their actions may make others feel–intentionally or not.
Talk to your children about different abilities and different perspectives and different life experiences.
Talk to your kids about inclusion.
Talk to your kids about accessibility.
Talk to your kids about how everyone has value regardless of their abilities.
Talk to your kids about the beauty of uniqueness.
Talk to your kids about kindness and empathy.
Talk to your kids about smiling and waving instead of staring and pointing.
Talk to your kids about lending a helping hand.
Talk to your kids about embracing a curiosity mindset instead of a fear of differences.
Talk to your children about welcoming kids into their group instead of excluding them.
Talk to your children about diversity.
Talk to your kids about bullying–in all forms.
Let’s make sure this school year everyone feels celebrated, welcome, and included✌💛

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
