I am Tammy. The original Tammy of Autism Learning Felt. I’m Back! Did you miss me? I missed you! I have taken back Autism Learning Felt, thanks to the generosity of the other Tammy. We worked out a deal that made us both happy. I really missed writing about raising a child with autism. Raising an autistic child hasn’t gotten any easier. Thanks Tammy, for taking care of things while I took a break.
Update On Me Raising a Child With Autism
You may have found me over on Carolina Mom Blogger. I started that blog up last year, and write about healthy living, my weight loss journey, healthy recipes, reviews, and giveaways. I don’t blog about my son that often on there. I really missed that.
Raising a child with autism isn’t easy. I have a lot of things to catch you up on. I’m not going to do it in one post, though. The post would be too long if I did. I will start off with the fact that I now have a teenage autistic child. My son turned 13 last March. Oh my! Things have changed a lot. I’m dealing with the usual teenage hormone changes. Only, more so. Since my son has difficulties with communication, talking things through is hard. Figuring out what is going on is a constant challenge.
If you are raising a child with autism, I’m sure you know what I am going through. He’s more stubborn now. He’s also getting tall. I can’t make him do or not do something. Physically, that’s not possible. We have been trying to implement a behavior plan with the school, and his therapists. Only, they don’t know what to do.
I’m taking things one day at a time. That’s all I can do, for now. Are you raising a child with autism? Is that child a teenager? What advice do you have? I could use some.
