How does a parent dealing with special needs take a break?

Often caring for a child with special needs is a 24/7 job and most parents don’t get a break, a day off or even a quiet moment for themselves.

So what ways do you get a break, or find a moment of peace in the midst of chaos?

Because my son’s special needs don’t require constant vigilance, I am interested in how parents of children with more severe needs deal with the stress.

What do you do?
