- Gratitude, a mother, especially needs children
Children born with special needs provide exceptional dynamics activities for a mother’s life. The reaction that the mother shows when the child is expected to have an abnormality can be negative. Mothers who can accept children with special needs believe that what they experience is a gift. This kind of acceptance can encourage gratitude for mothers. The purpose of this study was to determine the gratitude picture of mothers who have especially needed children. This study uses a qualitative method with a descriptive approach. Research subjects consisted of two mothers with low vision children and Cerebral Palsy. Research respondents were selected using a purposive sampling technique. Data were collected through observation and interviews. The results showed that several factors could cause gratitude to mothers who have children with special needs. Gratitude experienced by the mother has a positive impact on the lives of mothers, such as feelings of calm, devotion to God, and mothers that help one another. The results of this study are useful for mothers who have especially needed children to know how grateful that arises so that they can live a better life.
