Looking after yourself

Being a parent or caregiver of tamariki with FASD can be a great experience, but it is also tiring and challenging. Whānau who have children with FASD are often under a great deal of stress. 

It's very important to look after yourself so that you're in the best possible place to be able to stop and think about options. This will not always be possible however, even with the best of intentions, so don't beat yourself up if you can't always respond in the way you wish you could!
