It seems like everyone but me is getting their child tested for autism. I've just read 3 threads that said they were testing for it this morning. I'm starting to think that people just have a lower standard for parenting, perhaps when it gets hard, thinking there must be something wrong because parenting should be easier. Anytime a child is a tad unruly or shy or NOT perfect in any way, they need a "diagnosis" for the child. Can't kids just have a personality these days?
** this is not directed to those with severe and true autistic children. I'm talking those who get their child labeled because they are a little different or hard to parent.
