A Mom of an Autistic Boy YELLED at ME for MY DS Being Too Rowdy Update 1
We were at a restaurant and they had Wheel Of Fortune on the TV. Every time the DING went after they would spin and buy a letter, my DS would say DING DONG! really loud. It was soo cute but embarrassing, so I kept saying SHHH! and Use your inside voice! I kept telling him to be quiet.
It wasn't good enough for this other mom, she came over and told me, "You need to discipline your kid because you're disrupting me and my family and my son is autistic." My DS then said DING DONG really loud and she yelled at my son to SHUT UP!
Her son came in to the restaurant crying. My son was not obnoxious, otherwise the restaurant would have turned down or off the TV. He was being cute saying DING DONG! after every ding on the TV. I know people don't like to deal with other kids, they only like their own, so I kept saying to my DS SHHH! and Use your inside voice! I was disciplining my DS. I just didn't take him outside for my food to get cold, and I didn't spank him because he was not being bad or harming himself or someone else, he was being a normal boy, making a noise after hearing the noise.
