It's All Okay

Just a mom blogging about life with an autistic child.

Location: Canada

I'm a stay at home mom with two boys. Patrick is my youngest and has ASD.

Self Awareness

Patrick, through much discussion and soul searching, has found out at the tender age of 7 that he is "different". The school and I have been collaborating and have really been stressing to him that everyone is different is some way. He's been a bit down because he's been told by other children that he's "worse" or "making things worse". I think we've helped him see that different isn't worse.

It's an ongoing thing, of course. And really has been the reason why I havn't been bloggy at all. But I have a new found need to blog. So my goal is to try and get something, anything, down in writing 6 days out of seven...even if it's gibberish. Please bear with me.
