A Support Group is usually formed to help parents cope with day-to-day problems of a chronic disabling disease or complication of one. A support group is essentially managed by another parent who has been exposed to some such condition and has had first hand experience of difficulties faced and solutions thereof, eg in a mentally retarded child, a child with dyslexia or for that matter any problem where general awareness is lacking and general measures are much more important than specific medical treatment.
We at growingwell.com will be starting such support groups. You are free to put up your problems or give tips from your own experience.
