Autism was not much of a factor in our decision to have more kids, if anything we are scared we won't know how to deal with our kids if any of them turn out to be NT.

Quote: Originally Posted by bigeyes You have to have college to have a shot at a decent income, but you start out with this awful debt that keeps you in the hole for years.... It seems like many people in this thread are saying that college did not give them a shot at a decent income... So the problem is a culture of "College at any price" rather than student loans being considered an investment in future income. I believe College is another...
Just to be clear, the end of the recession is NOT the end of the disaster. It will take a year or 2 AFTER the end of the recession before things are back to "normal" and unemployment will likely continue to go up even after the recession ends.

I would absolutely not do this struggle. How much do the lights cost, and how many things have you bought for him since the struggle that cost about the same? Also remember that Autistic people tend to have a hard time applying specific social incidents to general situations, which makes social learning difficult... but it also means that choosing to have a struggle "for the principle" of the matter, in order to prevent future struggles is not realistic, and will not...

Whatever the era, those behaviors are NOT "normal" behaviors for happy, non-stressed children. Things on the list based on external perception, or preconcieved notions about how children should act. Many would neither be surprising nor unacceptable if an...
Modern children are empowered, when compared to children of previous generations. "Speak only when spoken to" "Children should be seen and not heard", heck kids used to not be allowed to eat dinner untill the parents had finished. It is a different world, and we should expect our children to be different too.
