The thing is they hit you where it hurts..
“Don’t you want to give them the best chance?”
“What about friends?”
No parent wants to see their child struggling so they send you on training courses.
How to be a better parents.
How to have a better child.
Someone is telling (ever so nicely) there is a better way to do it.
Because then your child will go to school.
Then your child will be like everyone else.
ABA, PBS is snuck in everywhere.. Parent groups, Special Schools, Support Groups, Coffee Mornings.
“Don’t you want them to succeed?”
I want them to grow into who they want to be, whoever that is.
I want to see environments flex and adapt.
I want them to be themselves.
My child is who they are meant to be.
You and I are different (you like weddings, I hate them)
That is okay.
What is not okay is teaching children to pretend to be someone they are not.
What is not okay is training them to change or fit.
Change the environment, not the child.
(By the way they tried to pretend for years and it broke them)
