Don't Just Get Mad—Get Moving: Teach Skills That Matter

Don’t Just Get Mad—Get Moving: Teach Skills That Matter

Don't Just Get Mad Get Moving Teach Skills That Matter

I recently saw a post like this in an Autism Facebook Group and it just broke my heart.

The comments were coming fierce and fast.

“Awww kids are so mean”

“My biggest fear for my boys…”

“That is bs! The rule in my daughter’s class is, every child gets an invite or Noone at all.

“Kids are so rude.”

“Shame on the parents”

“My son struggles with making friends too. People are so cruel.”

One parent even suggested she should throw him a party and invite everyone except this child who called her son “weird”.

Here is the thing…. most parents who commented are spending their time focusing on the wrong things.

Most of the posts are from parents who don’t have a potty trained, communicating children with no problem behaviors.

Instead of working on what’s in front of their face, they are obsessing about the injustices their children can be exposed to.

And I get it, this post is triggering.

My Mama Bear would definitely wants to come out and be angry and hurt with this too.


When I calm down and I look at it, I ask myself

“Am I helping my child staying in a space that is just going to defocus me and keep me pissed off and resentful?” 


“Do I want to be in a place that is going to show me how to teach the most important skills my child needs to thrive?”

What would be the better use of your time?

It needs to be a part of your parenting that you stop yourself from jumping down the rabbit hole of poor me and my child and get to TEACHING your baby with Autism the life skills they need to have a chance to live an independent life.

Then when the time comes to have problems like this you’ll be better equipped to navigate uncomfortable situations vs doing nothing and just being angry at the world that stops for no one.

This is what we will go DEEP on at Potty Power.

This work will challenge you but challenges are a part of the human experience for ALL OF US.

There is no better example you could set for your child than them seeing their parents show them the path.

And although we never want to have our child experience pain, seeing them thrive in the face of it, will help you to feel solid you’re doing right by them.
