Love love love your blog. The fact that we’re sharing the same journey makes it even more special. My son is autistic and blind, he’s taught me more than any book, teacher, television show, Doctor could ever teach me. Hang in there…There’s nothing to hard for GOD! We have been through so many stages autism brings, but we’re still STANDING…Be consistent and patient, I promise you it gets better. From a special needs mother to another, we got this! 👍🏽 Take care! I’m 14 years in this so feel free to ask or just vent😊

Thank you so much for this comment, I started my blog with hope I would be able to connect with as many parents of special needs children as I could. It’s so nice to hear other parents being so understanding and willing to offer each other help and advice. It is very much appreciated.
Much love Jade x

Hello! I came across your page in hopes of speaking to someone who understands my daily struggles with my handsome 5 year old autistic child. I barely have friends or socialize with anyone other then certain members of my family. I haven’t come across someone I can relate and vent my issues. When my son was first diagnosed at the age of 3 1/2 yrs old it was very hard for me to accept. I cried and let everything out. After, I sucked all the sadness up and decided to grow thick skin. I accepted my son’s disability and did all the research I possibly can to get him all the help he needs, after all God can’t give us anything we can’t handle. Everyday I still learn something new, everyday it’s an adventure. What’s more important to me is my son is loved, cherished and most of all happy! I get a lot of slack from my mother as not being a fit parent. She judges from the outside without fully educating herself on my son’s condition. I refuse Autism to define my son but I will not welcome any negativity or Judging remarks from anyone and that’s including my mother. She’s really not understanding or supportive. My son is non verbal and it’s very challenging potty training him. I don’t give up because I know he will get it. He understands the concept of peeing in the toilet but when it’s time for him to actually potty in the toilet an accident happens on his underwear and he will not communicate to me he is wet. I constantly speak to him advising him where he should potty. Accidents happens and that’s all part of the training. My mother judges and tells me the school will put me at fault because he’s not fully potty trained. She does not understand my son will get help from the school. He is attending a special program in a more private setting. I know the private school will not judge me because they understand my son’s disability. She then starts comparing my child to other children. My son is NOT like other children and never will be. The world would be a boring place if we were all the same, don’t you think? LOL. Thank you for listening and hopefully you can read this. I will make sure to find you on Instagram. Xo – Jessica
Hey Jessica, I am so happy you have come across my blog. I can totally relate to feeling isolated; this is one of the main reasons why I starting my blog. It gave me an outlet to connect with people. I am so sorry to hear you are having a tough time at the moment. Toileting can be very tricky for children with ASD. Have you tried ABA therapy ( Applied Behavior Analysis) I had a great ABA tutor that worked with toileting and behavior issues through PECS ( Picture Exchange Communication System) Which is a great way of communicating with non verbal children. I totally agree all children are different and Dylan definitely keeps my days interesting to say the least 😂🙈 I would be more then happy to share my toileting tips that I have picked up through ABA Therapy. If you want to chat email me firstname.lastname@example.org I would love to hear from you.
