So I am reading " The Autistic Brain" by Temple Grandin. She mentioned that growing up her mother only allowed her to stem/use her copping behaviors like spinning, etc. for only 1 hour per dayi imagine so she could be more normal and learn more acceptable behavior. Do you agree with that parenting technique or do you allow your child to do their coping behaviors whenever needed? Personally I disagree with that. If my son needs to rock or bite on a chew tube I let him. But I of course encourage the appropriate behavior.
