This may sound like a strange post, but this is true for me and I'm curious about others. Do you think your confidence as a parent has actually improved since your child was diagnosed? It has taken time, but I think the combination of learning new techniques and realizing some of my sons behaviors go beyond my parenting has helped. I remember walking on eggshells around him and feeling like I must be doing it all wrong. Why would he have so many meltdowns? Now I realize he had his limits and sometimes, his behavior has little to do with me. Drawing more clear boundaries about me expectations can't be hurting either.
