LIBRARY HAS PLAY AREA- THIS IS NOT A RUDE LIBRARY QUESTION, THE LIBRARY SET UP TO HAVE KIDS BE KIDS WITH ADULTS SECTION FAR AWAY, KIDS WERE NOT LOUD , RUNNING WILD OR DISTRUBING OTHERS
you''re at library with your child , your child is between 3-6 yr old
there are six-seven kids playing together, one child (3.5yrs old) starting running in circles and making strange noises (this is autism stim-maybe you know this, maybe you do not)
all the other kids but one, start to run in circles and copy this action and the strange noises too
do you let the kids be kids
do you take your kids by the hand and leave in a hurry (giving the mom of the stimming child a "look"
do you not even notice that this is an autism thing and all the kids are "ACTING" in an autism like way
what do you think - if, you know that this child obviously has autism and is stimming and your kid is now "acting' like they have autism
if you know this is a classic autism thing and your child is now doing this, how does this make you feel
(this happened the other week, and YES, one mom took her two kids quickly out of library , nearly dragging them and did pause to give me a "look"
one mom seems not to notice - did not notice what her kids where doing or that they were "acting" autistic = God bless her!
another mom took opportunity of kids busy to go grab herself some books
which mom are you
are you me, the mom who has the child who is not "acting" autistic, just being herself

Were they making fun of her? How did your daughter act,did she think it was funny or did she look upset? I've had kids make fun of my son and the parents don't even correct them. If the kids thought it was a game,thats ok,its when the parents act like its a bad thing that makes the kid think they did something wrong.
