Hi there! My name is Lindsay San, and I am the founder and owner of The Pampered Parent. I am so thrilled to be here – being featured in the Extra Lucky Mom’s Blog is such an honor!
In addition to The Pampered Parent (which we’ll talk more about in a minute…), I am also a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). As a BCBA, I work with children with a variety of developmental disabilities to improve communication and social skills, foster independence, and reduce challenging behaviors. I also work very closely with their families and caregivers to ensure they have all of the skills and knowledge they need in order to best support their child.
I have learned so many things in my role as a BCBA, but one of the main things I’ve learned is that special needs parents are absolutely incredible. They do it all. They go from work to the grocery store to taking their child to and from therapy, getting home just in time for bed. They tend to take care of everyone else, often putting themselves last. They do everything to make sure their family is OK, even if they, themselves, are not OK.
This is something I continued to see throughout my work with many families. The more I witnessed this, the more I realized that something had to be done to help these amazing caregivers take care of themselves, practice self-care, feel supported, and finally do something just for themselves.
That’s where The Pampered Parent comes in.
The Pampered Parent is a self-care subscription box and private, supportive online community for moms of children with special needs. Our mission is to give special needs moms the self-care, support, and encouragement they deserve in a convenient, simple, exciting way. Self-care delivered right to my doorstep? Yes, please!
Each month, our boxes have a different motivational theme and include:
A “featured item” that’s from a company that is run by and/or employs individuals with special needs
Self-care products like:
motivational books and interactive journals
positive affirmation items
relaxing bath and beauty products
delicious edible treats
An exclusive item (like a t-shirt, tote, or mug) with a special saying or quote that promotes disability inclusion, acceptance, and positivity
Along with the boxes, subscribers gain lifetime access to our private online community. In this safe space, they can meet and connect with other moms of children with special needs. There are also:
daily doses of encouragement
It has been such a delight being able to support special needs moms in this fun, unique way.
Moms getting something just for themselves. The element of surprise and excitement. Feeling special and understood. The smiles and happiness. The feelings of encouragement and inspiration. The push they need to finally take care of themselves.
That is what The Pampered Parent is all about.
I look forward to continuing to grow The Pampered Parent in order to support as many special needs moms as possible. Because, boy, do they deserve it! Thank you for being part of my journey.
