When you have tried everything…
When you feel you’ve exhausted every option…
You’ve tried every method to potty train, to encourage communication, or to reduce problem behaviors in your child with autism…
Pause and consider this:
The thought “I’ve tried everything” really means there is nothing left to try.
And when you believe this toxic thought, your brain stops working on finding solutions to teach these important life skills that are the foundation needed for an independent life.
It surrenders to the idea that what you have now is the best it’s going to get.
Then your brain goes off solving problems you never imagined when you were holding your baby in your arms right after they were born.
– Where to sneak off to change an 10 year old’s diaper at a party
– How to politely turn down playdates because your child can’t talk
-How to fight off angry parents when your child cuts the line for the amusement park ride or bites their kid on the playground.
Are these the problems you want your brain solving for?
Do you want to believe there is always more that could be done to help your baby thrive?
I have tried WAY MORE THINGS that didn’t work for Julianna then did
If at any point I believed “I tried everything”, I would have never found the things that DID WORK.
Not only have I put my daughter who was diagnosed with moderate to severe autism on a path towards a life of independence, I’ve also helped thousands of families learn to help their children and adults with Autism to do the same.
I could never say that “I’ve tried everything.”, so if it’s not true for me, it’s not true for you.
Your baby deserves a parent that will be able to look themselves in the mirror at the end of each day and say I showed the fuck up today.
Those baby deserves a parent that doesn’t white flag them, but fights for them, believes in them.
The truth is you’re their best shot, and if you don’t believe in them who will?
Your baby deserves a parent who believes there is always more to try.
The possibility of a life of increased independence for your child is on the line.
They deserve every chance.
So when you don’t think, “I have tried everything,” it means that there are more things to try.
What are they? Start now.
