Parents say they have had no time to prepare for the many changes that occur to their lives as a result of a son or daughter’s brain injury. Often, now that their family have grown, parents are at the stage of planning for their own future. It seems that life and those plans disappear in an instant. Changes in personality and behaviour of their child can be very disconcerting for parents. Displays of childish behaviour can be embarrassing, while mood swings and having to provide guidance and feedback can be challenging.
