My sd has autism. A community agency helps us pay to put sd in some kind of activity. She wanted to do soccer I put her in it and she hated it. She wanted to do cheerleading I signed her up got her all excited. Then a week before cheer started bm said to dh She wanted sd in karate because she thinks we live in the city and sd might need to defend herself someday. (Um no sd is NEVER alone and at the rate things are going she will never be alone. We live in a nice safe community she just freaks out because everyone in her family will say I worry about sd living in st louis. Which we live 1 1/2 hrs from.) Now sd comes home and says she wants to do karate. I told her I already paid for cheerleading. She threw a fit and I begged her to just try it and we will talk after practice tonight. She agreed. Shes not happy about doing it but everytime I remind her that she gets to wear a pretty skirt and and gets a metal she gets excited again. I was soo mad the day before bm started this talk about karate I sent bm a pic of sds cheer outfit so she could show sd and sd would look forward to coming home. Plus before spring break bm was all excited about cheerleading and taking to sd about it every night abd now it's like something changed. I want her to do what she loves not a sport because she's been forced to fear an amazing home.
