I'm learning to ignore the ignorance of some people, my child having autism just is! (I've learnt to accept that now)
It is not bad parenting or anything I've done 'wrong'!
Maybe those small minded idiots should try looking at the world from HIS point of view.
He is not a problem to be solved but a person to be understood and valued!
The melt downs aren't bad behaviour it's sensory overload, the inability to adapt to the environment they're in at the time. It is out of their control. Yes it's loud, frustrating, risky and bloody worrying for us but imagine how he feels!!! Sometimes lashing out and shouting is his only release, there's no talking him down, no amount of shouting or stressing is going to 'snap them him of it'!! We have to wait it out, Let him come down in his own time.
His strength is inspiring, to carry on fighting that fight day in and day out!
High five to all those parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles, caregivers and teachers who love someone with autism, you rock!! I know it's not easy but let me tell you, their love is worth the bad times xxx
