Inspirational Quotes for Parents
Whenever I am stressed or feeling down and need some encouragement, I read inspirational quotes to make me feel better. Whether you are a parent of a child with delays who is frustrated with his or her progress or a fellow SLP who has been working hard on a challenging case, remember never to give up. Acquiring new skills, breaking bad habits, or getting a child to talk is not easy. I hope these quotes help you to stay motivated and lift your spirits.
