I am guessing it is mostly women that read my blog. Prove me wrong.
So, I just wanted to take a minute to talk about m'boy Jaxon. (On the left)
Most of you know, he is Autistic.
Unlike other Autistic children he LOVES being around people.
The problem is, he doesn't always know how to act or what to say. Or, worse, he might say, or do something inappropriate.
If so, I am sorry.
I wish I could change it.
I wish I could.
Please accept my apology if he does something not appropriate.
But, will you do one other thing for me?
Talk to your child.
Talk to your child about children who are different.
He didn't choose to be different.
Tell your child that even though he is "different" you should still try to be nice.
Tell your child that even though you might think he is "weird" there are people in his world who love him. Dearly.
Tell your child that if they don't want to play with him, that is ok. But, try not to be mean to him.
Because, he still has feelings.
And he still wants to have friends.
Tell your child, especially your older children, to never hurt anyone physically.
Just because they might be bugging you.
Chances are, they are younger than you think they are and they don't quite understand what they should be doing.
Because his mom can't stand guard his whole life.
Sometimes, he is going to be on his own.
And I worry about him.
So, please tell teach your children about TOLERANCE.
