Parenting Chaos: Practical Support and Encouragement for Parents of Explosive Children

This labor of love and, if I am honest, desperation, explores the reasons our children meltdown and most importantly, how best to help them. I am as painfully open as possible, while still respecting and protecting the privacy of my sweet boys.For almost 14 years now, I have been trying to figure out how to react, how to respond, how to discipline, how to show compassion, and how to have boundaries around my children’s behavioral challenges. This book is a journey through all of it – the successes, the total failures, the tears, the strategies, and more than anything else, the desire to help my children feel a sense of relief when it feels like there’s none.Please, join me.Parenting Chaos: Practical Support and Encouragement For Parents Of Explosive Children is now available in both e-reader and print copies.


Special Education At Home

I wrote Special Education At Home for any mom, who like me, feels the fear, the stress, the anxiety, the hope, the loneliness, the intense love, and the unshakable sense that homeschooling just might be the right choice for my family.

Everyday Autism

Books By Shawna Wingert, Not The Former Things

I am honored to introduce you to my first book.

It is exactly the book I wish was around our first year, post diagnosis. It is the book I was searching for, but never found.

It is a compilation of all of my posts that address the day to day realities of parenting that first year, with a bit of new content as well.

This book is about our hearts, as parents of children with a new spectrum diagnosis.
