Any Texas parent has concerns as their children get older. For parents who have children with Down syndrome or similar conditions, their concerns may have a sharper edge than others. In many cases, children with such conditions do not reach milestones on the same schedule as other children, and some parents may even consider guardianships as their kids reach their later teen years.
Though parents of children with special needs have a great love for those children, they understand that certain aspects of life will be more challenging in many cases. For instance, when these children hit puberty, their bodies may change on schedule, but they could have a more difficult time understanding why the changes are happening and who it is appropriate to talk to about these changes. They may also need more assistance when it comes to handling certain changes.
