Serious question, if your child went to residential school and was rarely home would you say to someone who's child is at home full time and has only just got respite after nearly 17 years that you need it to.

Mmm have come accross this one too.It is quite a regular occurance where i live.Children are at residential school and get respite on top.Tis a difficult one we only get two nights a month if we are lucky quite ofeten it is cancelled.But no i would probably think it is unreasonably to say that but that is my opinion.

Hi what type of respite do you have,does your dd go to a family or do you have carers coming into your home,or like some families are you able to access a hospice ?
