PanKwake never ceases to amaze me with her logic and wisdom. But after a night of bingeing on bad reality TV this one was blog worthy…#Respect Your Children!
Yes, yes, you tell us all this. But how? What do you do to #RadiCoolUnschool your little human? What does it really look like?
In conclusion…A couple of final thoughts on this divergent parenting style for our #neurodivergent little humans.
Some of the earliest work in #autism by Kanner and Bettelheim blamed #RefrigeratorMothers and #DistantFathers. Same for #homosexuality. You would think that in the 21st century the #science of #autism was beyond such irresponsibility. Unfortunately a recent discourse on Twitter with one of the few #ActuallyAutistic academicians in the field shows it is not. Is this beginning of another century of blame the parents? Child abuse witch hunts with an assumption of guilt until proven innocent by the ‘experts’? Another layer of investigation to the already challenging pathway to PDA diagnosis?
Still processing this one, but increasingly I am re-evaluating how I help PanKwake and our friends to balance their neurodiverse needs?
My thoughts as the Proud parent of a Happily Autistic little girl about #AutismSelfieWeekend…and hers.
