I don’t want to be the angry neighborhood mom who yells at kids but I was pretty angry at the child who was teasing and I don’t know what to do to actually Auntie bear help him understand. We’re in kind of a grouchy part of northern Appalachia where being sensitive to kids with differences is not really a known thing.

Just fills my heart!!! Correct as we advocate for our children we have to show people it’s about raising the bar daily!!! I don’t see limitation with my son Kenny T I see and feel endless lessons and new ways to learn and teach and new ways to love!!! Here is kKenny the first time he ever blew out a candle on his 5 Th birthday!!!! Heart is full I had an older sister diagnosed with Down’s syndrome. I always wanted to protect her like you do your brother. People were not as accepting as they are now. Auntie bear I am 62. We have come a long way but still have a long way to go. Thank you Alyssa and Chris for all you do. It matters so much! what DO you do if other kids are making fun of a neurodiverse child? And there’s not a wonderful older brother to say “stop?” Maybe a topic for a video sometime? My daughter’s buddy across the street is autistic, the other kids she plays with are neurotypical and she’s neurotypical, and I’ve caught one of them making fun of the autistic child, pantomiming his hand-biting in a mocking way, and the autistic child as far as I know doesn’t know he’s being mocked.

It’s a personal preference. I say “person with autism” just because that’s what colleges teach. I’ve found it pretty much 50/50 with adults on the spectrum. Half say “adult with autism” the other half says “autistic adult”. I don’t think too much about the wording as long as it’s done in a respectful tone. doesn’t think of himself as autistic or a person with autism anyway, he just loves to blow soap bubbles and jump on the trampoline and throw balls on the roof, and we’re having a hard time as the kinds his age gets older so differences get more pronounced.
Guess just try to telk the boy that we are all different. And we should never make fun of what makes us different. Maybe also try to make him think of a scenario where he is made fun of. How would you feel? Would you like it? And who knows maybe the example this kid gets at home is the one to make fun of people. . Your daughter can be the little boys’ ally. If all the kids voice out that making fun is not cool maybe that one kid will stop.
