Letting Your Blind Child’s Wild Side Out

Letting Your Child's Wild Side Out

Confidence, self-awareness, and capability are all things we want to teach our children, whether they have special needs or not. But sometimes it can be hard to let go and allow our children, especially if they are visually impaired, to move out into the world on their own, develop their own abilities, and learn from their mistakes.

Graciela Tiscareno-Sato, mother to a beautiful little girl, Milagro, has traveled the country telling other parents of visually impaired children just how she and her family were able to break down those barriers and allow Milagro to blossom into a happy and confident child.

Their story, as well as video of Milagro growing from a baby to a downhill skiing five-year-old, is available on the DVD Letting Your Child’s Wild Side Out: Raising the Wild and Confident VI Baby, Toddler and Preschooler.

This DVD is such a great inspiration for both parents and care givers of blind and visually impaired young children!
