Now Reading: Autism Daddy’s Greatest Hits!! August 2011
December 8, 2011
A couple of months back I took some of my fav Autism Daddy Facebook Page updates from April thru July and strung them all together in one LONG post that you can read HERE.
Another 4 months went by so I thought I’d capture August – November, but boy I’m posting alot more than I used to.
So below is 51 status updates from August, easily numbered for your reference. So if you’re commenting on a specific post please include the number. 🙂
I do this because (a) I’m a dork, (b) there’s some hidden gems in there that would get lost if just left on Facebook and (c) it lets people who are new to Autism Daddy get to read some of the older stuff…
In one long post it’s kinda bizarrely poetic, dontcha think?
So without further ado…

I’m a 48 year old neurotypical dad with a 14 year old son with severe, non-verbal autism & epilepsy. I created this blog to rant about autism & epilepsy while celebrating my son who I affectionately call “the king” :-).

It's nice to find another ASD parent who is ok with calling their kid weird sometimes. Mine is. And LOVE the King Shit reference. May have to come up with ones of our own for our 2 ASD kids!
I love #41!!! made me laugh 🙂 not at you, with you!
My 5 1/2 yrs old son speaks/interacts at a 3 yrs old level. Well for the past 2 years we've bribed our son to not have meltdowns. While in the restaurant we'll say, "Want to go to Toys R Us?" Yes he responses. "Well then behave, sit down, and eat or play with your toys." He loves toys! Most of the time our bribes work, but we have to keep reminding him about the reward. We usually buy him a toy every weekend. We allow him to cry it out at home. We'll hold him and encourage him to express what is upsetting him, since most meltdowns are him processing the daily environmental stressors. He used to hurt me when he had meltdowns, but I think the hugs and letting him cry it all out at home has helped him. I learned that hug/cry method from Aletha Solter, Ph.D. http://www.awareparenting.com/articles.htm
thanks for posting these 🙂 I haven't been able to read through all of them but I will most likely be back to finish later 🙂 I really enjoy your posts and I can relate a lot with much of what you talk about and say.
It's refreshing to find someone that's real and dealing with Autism and also is not too negative or too positive. Know what I mean? Not everything is gloom and doom here but also not everything is made out to be a bed of sunshine and roses when we all know it can't be. At least not all the time.
