Hi, I'm Sue,
Welcome to How To Help My Child. I am so happy that you are here, this is the place where I get to help Moms and their children.
I am wife to Dan and Mom to 3 boys - Samuel, Timothy and Nicholas. All three boys have had learning and special needs. As I researched and found strategies and solutions to help my family, I realized what a lonely and overwhelming journey parenting was. I knew I needed to share this journey and help other Moms.
My little boys have become big boys and are now 24, 22 and 18. Life has changed so much, with the early intervention and techniques I have implemented contributing to their success.
Sam is now living interstate and working in a high profile career. He has a Bachelor of Business in Property.
Tim is currently studying his Masters in Surveying and has a Bachelor of GeoSpatial Science.
Nic has finished his final year of school and is studying a Bachelor in Construction Management whilst he waits for his Defence Force Recruitment. He finished Air Force Cadets as a CUO -Cadet Under Officer (the highest rank to hold. He has been a solo pilot since he was 15 and trains other cadets to fly. He plans to fly planes for his career.
Dan and I are so very proud of our boys, whom are fine young men.
