Don't fake it. Don't be all goo goo gaga. Babies and children have enough people being like that. Just treat them like mini adults. With respect. My 4 year old could tell you tons about astronomy and anatomy, and would happily listen for ages on those or any science related topics. If you simply wan...

^^ thank you beady. That is pretty nice praise to hear. It does really mean something, in my world, when I get it right as it is all trial and error and inevitably sometimes I don't get it right! Parenting is a lot greater and wider than I could have ever imagined! But a lot more amazing too. Luckil...

Everything I see people what they do and consume. Also everything I experienced in my life is making me to suffer disposal without my fault nor control. Why people focus on very short time commitment? Like freebies at market days and expos? So much waste and plastic crap to be dumped. Disposable pa...

Oh, I see now, Elsa. Thanks for that link. I didn't realize that 'skä' makes the H+W sound like in 'själv' and 'sjö'. Thanks so much!

Skär- is also reference to coast ( Skärgård) whereas kärr- is refernce to a type of wetland.

I have only experienced autistic burnout in my child so this might not be helpful. She has had two - one at 5 and one at 8. Then she got diagnosed and has not had anything like that since. For her she literally needed to be in a safe cocoon where she didn't need to make any choices or feel any pres...

^^ got to smile a bit at that ^^ When we went for autism assessment there was a whole shelf in the centre's office dedicated to munchhausen. Looking back on my own childhood I am often perplexed that my mum never had my frequent fainting, sleepwalking and anxiety investigated.... that she let me mov...

Sorry for writing this in English, but I have a quick question: I encountered the names of two bird species, 'kärrsnäppa' (dunlin) and 'skärsnäppa' (purple sandpiper). Are these two words homophones? Or is there a difference in pronunciation between kärr and skär? Thanks in advance. Yes there is a ...

Maybe my favorite here just because it keeps things simple: https://awkwardstyles.com/product/mens-autism-autistic-support-graphic-v-neck-t-shirt-tops-for-autism-awareness/ Stylistically, I like this one the best. But it doesn't say what it is made of. I cannot stand any fabric except cotton on my ...

Would you be willing to be the one always driving to a guy? Always being the one to drive him around with you, or would you become upset and think he’s just mooching off you and hang you as a taxi? That’s how I’ve seen women here and onlin expr ss the idea of dating poor men without cars. So I won’...

Soundtrack to "spirited away" as my girls have recreated the whole bathhouse on the kitchen floor with herbal baths and bath tokens and fairly lights. I am jumanji. I am feeling suitably grumpy for my role.

What Jason says above regarding interests becoming or replacing stimming behaviour is an important point. My daughter is allowed a doodle book in class. It might look like she is not concentrating but she is super concentrated whilst doodling. And her art is amazing and ever improving as she is cons...

The months before I clocked my daughter was autistic her stims were bothering me. Finding out made the irritation go away entirely. Why? Well, because then the noises had purpose to me and I got why they happened and what she was doing and why she needed to do it. Suddenly I found the noises would a...

I just quit. I'm on day 5 of no coffee. It's kind of ok but only because my husband is away if he was making coffee I would have caved by now.

^^ Yes in many ways Jason is right. We made sure we got lots of one on one time doing fun stuff together and it is often during something totally different - driving home from the opera (one of my daughter's special interests is opera) or when giggling at something eating sushi by ourselves without ...

This was a very hard age for us too. In our case it got a lot easier. 6-8 was very hard. She has grown into her own skin a lot more now, is really confident, knows and understands more about her brain, how it works, how she can make it work better to her advantage, when she is getting overloaded, wh...
