Posted by   + Show Post

shoud shut the hell up with how to raise them better.  Unless you are a parent with an autistic child, you're clueless.

My children don't have autism. I wouldn't give an autistic child's parent advice. As the OP stated, I'm clueless about that. I would think that some parenting strategies I use would be useless to them.

Then don't put your child in a situation they're going to freak out in. Not my problem if your kid is having a meltdown but please remove them from the situation so don't bother other people. As a mother with no autistic children even when my child is having a bad day or over tired or whatever he is going through that day I don't drag him around with him to provoke misbehavior.

good point since I know 100% of the time what will set him off and when.  It must be awesome knowing everything, huh?

My kids ARE autistic and I say the same.  I do my darnedest to not set them up for failure.

It sounds like you're saying never to take them out because they might bother someone.

That's awesome!  I wish I could give you a medal.  You have just proved everyone wrong by proving that all kids with autism are exactly the same! 

I'm impressed!

Because every parent with an autistic child is a perfect parent?

Also, something bothering my child, I don't see as a "failure"
