Then: We received your autism diagnosis when you were 2. We were determined to show you unconditional love through this journey. You were 3 when you put a brand new 24 piece puzzle together in under 10 minutes. Your love of visiting the library when you began to read when you were just 4. Your frustration when you couldn’t figure something out and how proud you were when you finally did! How kind you always were.
Now: You love the challenge of a new video game and mastering it within an hour! Your love of visiting the library and reading a YA chapter book in a day. How you stick your tongue just a bit when you try to unravel a math problem and the proud smile that spreads across your face when you conquer it. And how kind you always are.
This video really tugged at my heart strings!
I think you will find The Center for Parent and Teen Communication a great resource for parents! This article from Dr. Ken Ginsburg goes perfectly with that video, don’t you think? It helped me see how much I loved about my son as a child and to see those same wonderful traits as a teen.
