2 a.m. mom’s know who they are.
ARE YOU A “2 a.m. MOM?”
A 2 a.m. mom is one who is up at 2 a.m. because of a child. If you are reading this, you are a great parent. You may be up worrying or you may be up because the child is up and needs you. Either way, at some point during the night, your stress is heightened and your worry soars. Your mind races, longs for answers, you want to sleep but your child is more important than rest.
If nothing else is certain about Sensory processing disorders, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and the rest of the growing neurological disorders in children, one thing is for sure. They have strong and undeniable neurological components. The question is, what is the rest of the equation? What caused the nervous system to change?
In an article published in the journal “Frontiers In Integrative Neuroscience,” in 2009, findings point to a host of potential contributors to Sensory Processing Disorders (SPD) and children with both ASD and SPD. Many studies have shown that there may multiple causes, making the hunt for a single cause, all that more elusive. Many of the potential contributors in this retrospective study, change a child’s neurology in a way that could be helped by the right forms of therapy. Parents all over the world have helped their children and helped themselves by filling out a questionnaire that organizes the risk factors shown to be potentially related to these neurological disorders. Like most parents for a child with spectrum disorders, they feel they’ve tried so much already and no longer know who to trust. Who’s to say you can even trust science?
