    So very helpful and inspiring as always. Thank you! Our next big theater outing is The Sound of Music in a couple of weeks at a big theater here in LA with Grandpa who has dementia and doesn’t hear well. It should be quite a combination. We are hopeful we will all enjoy it.

    So many times I said “yes!” during this post, but I think I loved “I will offer a kind word but not advice” the most. That’s where I dwell now. Thank you for this!

    I have always taken my son everywhere and like you, at times we’ve had to leave or apologize (or both) mostly when he was younger. Now that he is older I really am not afraid to take him anywhere at all, not to say that I don’t have my fair share of anxiety beforehand but he usually does quite well.

    This was so beautifully and eloquently written. It ot such a beautiful way of describing the many sides of children with ASD that parents are trying to handle. We could all use these views to be kinder in the world. Thank you for your insights.

    Lovely and thank you for the reminder. I used to take Katie everywhere but lately, for the past ten years, it’s been so hard that her world and mine have gotten smaller.
