Absolutely!

I won't feel guilty for doing nothing with my son.

During the holidays social media is filled with photos of parents and carers taking their kids out places. Everyday seems to have a new adventure. I used to think I was a bad mum if I didn't do this, now I realise it's the opposite.

My son can't cope with endless days out. What may be a neurotypical child's heaven could be my son's hell. He likes time at home and more than that, he needs it.

We are lucky enough to have a large garden and I realise how blessed we are to have this space. When we spend the day in the garden I'm not being a lazy parent, I'm proactively giving my son time to process and regulate. The holidays mean we are out of routine and this can be a lot for him to cope with. Some days he just needs his iPad. This is not lazy parenting, this is understanding his needs.

I've been told in the past that my son doesn't have ADHD, I just don't take him out enough. Comments like this wash over me now but in the early days I used to get really upset.

Parenting a neurodiverse child in the holidays is a completely different kettle of fish to parenting a neurotypical one. Endless days out will not lead to a tired, happy child but an overstimulated and dysregulated child.

We have plans tomorrow and kiddo went out yesterday. Today we are having a rest day at home.

Don't feel guilty for having calm days with no exciting adventures out and about. Our kids need them more than we realise.

Today is ‪#AutismAwarenessDay‬. At the age of 12 I was diagnosed with Asperger, a form of autism. At that time I had no idea what it meant. When I and my parents told people I was autistic, they always reacted with shock since I didn’t fit into the stereotype of autistic people.
Today, so many (especially girls) remain undiagnosed. The reasons for that are often lack of awareness, prejudices and the fact that many still see autism as a “disease” or something that has to hold you back. That more people are diagnosed with autism etc isn’t because there is an “inflation” in diagnoses but since awareness is increasing and many highly sensitive people experience stress related problems in modern society which gives them reason to suspect they’re on the spectrum.

Almost everywhere there are very limited resources to give autistic people the necessary support. Without these adjustments autism can turn into a disability. But under the right circumstances it can truly be a gift and turn into something you - and society - can benefit from. Sadly, today the level of awareness is so low. So many go undiagnosed and will therefore not receive the help they need and may go their whole life believing something is wrong with them.
So let’s all join in spreading awareness. It could literally save lives. Autism is not a disease. It’s not something you ”have”. It’s definitely not ”caused” by anything like vaccine or diet. It simply means that you are a bit different from everyone else.
And in a world where everyone strives to act, think and look the same - being different is truly something to be proud of.
Thats why I’m very proud to be autistic.
