Since Rosanna’s younger sibling has SEN, her mother used to be overly focused on the youngest child, leaving Rosanna feeling neglected and isolated. ChickenSoup’s parenting and counselling support have strengthened their mother-daughter bond. Rosanna’s mother has also become more supportive of her passion in music and dancing.
FIC#028: Story of Rosanna and Her Family
“I look after my two children on my own since I gave birth to them. My daughter is now 11 years old, and my son is three years old! My kids have transformed from not knowing anything to now my son can eat on his own. There are many ups and downs and despite my kids misbehave sometimes, I am happy to be able to witness their growth.”
“I used to think my life was full of twists and turns and I had trouble sleeping every night. I was worried about my son’s growth and the bad influences that my daughter might face. I contemplated my failed marriage. Now that school has started, I take things easy and try not to worry too much…
Our lives might seem dull but at least I’m able to sleep every night and I truly feel blessed. I’m going to take a beauty and skin care course. It’s rare that I get to relax while doing something I like.”
Rosanna’s mom was recently interviewed by HOY TV to share what it was like to adapt to changes due to COVID as a caregiver and her kids’ struggles following the resumption of full-day classes.
