IT'S NOT A BEHAVIOR ISSUE!!!
did that get you attention??? You might think you are a better parent
than me, and that you have the inside track on raising the perfect child....
You aren't....You Don't
THE CHILD NEEDS TO BE BETTER DISCIPLINED!!
Wrong again...it is not a behavioral disorder. Disciplining someone who
has not commited a crime is cruel.
IF THAT WERE MY CHILD, I'D TAKE IT OUTSIDE AND WHOOP IT!!
you can't beat the autism out of a kid, anymore than you can beat the brown out
of her hair....the only thing you do is hurt her, and make her distrust the outside
world even more.
TEMPER TANTRUMS SHOULD STOP AFTER 2 YEARS OLD!!
it's not a temper tantrum. It's over-stimulation. You see, she is very sensitive
to stimuli that you cannot even sense. She pulls the scencys out of a drawer and throws
them outside....she cannot wear clothes that haven't been washed, she cannot have a sheet
on her bed. Loud, warehouse/gymnasiums ceilings cause an echo that make her cringe.
When there are too many sensations happening at once, and being unable to verbalize
the terror, she just melts. Sometimes this includes screaming, throwing, hitting or head-banging.
It is just a method to make everything else that's attacking all of her sensory inputs....stop.
You yelling at her doesn't help the situation.
So don't stare...and keep your opinions to yourself. If you happen to be with one of these
ignorant parents, do me a favor and try to educate them. "She may not be spoiled, it may be
that she is on the Autism Spectrum" is a good way to start out.
Autism does not define her....it is part of my beautiful child.
She can learn to control
She can learn to trust
She is extremely funny and humorous, with a dash of ornery.... just like me
She has beautiful eyes
She loves to swim
She loves the Black Eyed Peas, and can rap with them.
She loves being outdoors especially now, when spring is blooming.
She loves her pets, and even the dogs "get it"
She loves playing with other kids....don't shun her. we MISS the
birthday party invitations...we MISS the playdates.
Don't be scared. Just ask us...we'll tell you. We have no problem in answering
honest questions....we DO have a problem with "know it alls" talking behind
