Week 4 Lesson’s from Nick "Never Compare Kids"
Comparing kids is never a good idea. But it was all I had in the beginning. It was the tool I used to imagine what might be ahead of us. I saw Nick's future in every child no matter if the child was doing great or severely challenged. It was a terrible roller coaster of hope then despair, back to hope and back to despair and none of it was real. Time and Nicky have made it very clear to me that he's not any of those kids, he's Nicky an unique person beyond measure. My lesson, no good comes from comparing one child’s progress with another.
