This video is inspired by an older post of mine called Backwards Parenting. I have certainly had to take everything I previously knew about parenting and turn it on its head. I expect many of my readers will have too!
This video is a thought provoking letter written from the perspective of an Autistic child. It sums up my sons feelings of some issues when he was in primary school. I think a lot of people will be able to relate!
I am, apart from an Autism mum and a blogger, a professional child carer. I have within my care a variety of children, of all ages from birth to 13. Some of these are neurotypical, some are Autistic and some have ADHD. All of them are individuals!
Instead of telling our PDAers what to do, we let them think they are in charge, they are less anxious this way.
Instead of surprises we do plans.
Instead of making sure our SPD children get a balanced diet, we make sure they eat.
Instead of subjecting our children to a day of stress, sometimes we keep them home and that’s ok.
