Parenthood is Back!

We were thrilled to see NBC's Parenthood come back with their season premiere 'Family Portrait.'

In this episode, we see the Adam and Kristina prepare for Haddie to head off to college. They had planned a week that would be 'all about her,' but it proved to be difficult. The focus seemed to revolve around Max from his tantrum in a restaurant to losing his lizard. 

Haddie tried to connect with Max by giving him a weighted blanket and telling him how much she loved him. He seemed uninterested and Haddie was visabily upset. 

So we want to know - How do you balance the needs of both your typical children and neurotypical children? 

In the clip below, Adam and Kristina share a moment, as they miss Haddie - even before she leaves!
