I'm curious to find out 2 things from my fellow mommas:
1) Where are you all buying your support "products" for your kids like night pants(pull-ups), sensory aides for chewing or enzymes for digestion... Anything you buy on a regular basis... Where do you get it?
2) What strategies do you use to help your children relax or make sense of their world?
For example, last night I read my son (an aspie fixated on right and wrong) a lovely story book rooted in zen ideology. In the story, a really rude girl looses her earring. She's screaming and hollering and generally making a real ass of herself when suddenly a really sweet boy offers to help. He eventually finds the earring and the nasty girl snatches it from his hand and walks away without a single 'thank you'. He doesn't seem upset and goes back to playing with another boy and the other boy says why didn't you yell at that girl for not saying thank you!?! And the little boy says, I didn't do it so she'd say thank you. I did it to be helpful because I like being kind. As you can imagine there were a whole host of issues to discuss, which we did. But in the end he just looked at me and said, "what did all that mean mom?" LOL! Sigh... we can but try....
