    Thank you for taking the time to share. As I previously mentioned, we have a neighbor child with autism. We entertain outdoors frequently, and he is often a verbally participating”guest,” through his mesh yard barrier. I then have an opportunity to share with our friends what I understand, through your postings, some of the many ups and downs your and other families experience 24/7.

    This hit home with me today. For me stickers…stickers…dad threw away the stickers. I wanted to keep those stickers. I can’t get any more stickers because when I go back all of the kids will have taken the rest of the stickers. I want THOSE stickers. Dad took the stickers from me. …in the end, the stickers were where the left them but he wouldn’t listen through the screaming and tears.

    This is true. Sometimes I question myself too? Should I give in? Just this one time so that the screaming will stop? But I also want him to be more flexible because what is going to happened when I’m no longer by his side? Who is going to accommodate him? Will his sister have pacience with him? So many questions that I don’t want to think about.

    It is so incredibly great when “they” eat something new or find a new food…KD is now the food of choice here..who knew?? Ice cream is still eaten every day…and two-three times a week there is a McD’s bag in the house…rigid? Yes, but now willing to branch out just a little and that is deeply gratifying even if the food is not “healthy” by others’ standards….We are just grateful he eats at all!! 🙂
