 Forum: Parents' Discussion   Topic: Advice on telling kids about their autism

Posted: 11 minutes ago

I just now ran into this thread on Twitter , in which one person responds to the following question by a parent: When do you think we should tell them? I want to tell my son when the time is right (he's 7) but not sure how much he'd understand yet and don't want to cause him anxiety by telling him h...

That's a very insulting question. I'm autistic. That's different from being a narcissist. I don't see how pushing for autism acceptance can even be close to that.

I don't think the OP's point was to equate autism with narcissism. See other posts in the thread for clarification of various issues.

Hmm, I doubt that it's accurate to refer to the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and Jamaat-e-Islami as full-fledged neo-Nazis, although they may have some Nazi-like doctrines. Anyhow, it's nice to see that Bangladesh has a law against bullying autistic people, although I have reservations about o...

Eureka! Just thought up the "Better head out before I pee my pants!" as an escape plan, if necessary - the park probably doesn't have a bathroom (crossing fingers). Btw, any other suggestions...especially if they come in the next hour would be appreciated! Sorry I didn't see this within a...

I would use Windows Notepad (which comes free with the Windows operating system). and the formatting on my outline went to hell. I tried to fix it, did so, hit send and it screwed up the for...

There are people I know who are bad to their kids, bad to their spouses, etc, but then they try to make up for it and try to do the right thing, and try to fix the problem. What exactly are they doing by way of trying to fix the problem? For example, are they seeing a therapist for help with anger ...

Are there any activities (e.g. board games or card games) that everyone in your family (including you) enjoys? If so, perhaps you might want to ask your parents if such games/activities could be played at family gatherings, so that you can feel more included. Many autistic people find games and othe...

The only real hope for the U.S. is a massive grassroots movement behind a third-party. Agreed on the need for a massive grassroots movement, but I don't think a third party is the answer. We just need more a lot more successful elections of progressive Democrats like AOC, in Congress, in state legi...

Really? I don't think I've ever known anyone who "worships" Biden. It's my impression that most moderate and left-leaning people see Biden as just a normal politician, with normal politician flaws, whereas Trump was glaringly unfit for office. Maybe that was too strong of a word, but that...

The Democrats did nothing to really fight Trump's SC picks. They approved them all. They are worthless! Given that the Democrats were a minority in the Senate, there wasn't much they could do to stop Trump's SC picks. But where did you get the idea that the Democrats actually voted to "approve...

A major concern of autistic rights activists has been how parents' behavior toward their autistic children is affected by the parents' attitude toward autism. The anti-"cure" position was first articulated back in the early 1990's by Jim Sinclair, Don't Mourn for Us . Jim Sinclair's main o...
