Breaking The Silence of Autism

It has been an “oatmeal” kind of day.

It’s been a rough day but Gavin has been very difficult. Gavin has listened at all today. He just seems to ignore the rules anymore. I swear to God if I hear him say “I’m sorry” one more time my head is going to explode. He’s only saying sorry because he got busted. He doesn’t learn from his mistakes.

We are seeing more of the mental health issues at work here. These problem’s go way deeper then Autism alone. I honestly don’t know how much more of this I can take. I gave him chance after chance today and he still choose poorly. So he had oatmeal for dinner. He had almost 30 min to eat a really tiny bowl. He didn’t cause he was stalling. What he didn’t know was that he would have gotten desert if he had eaten it. Honestly he had more then enough time to eat what was given to him. Again he choose poorly. At least it’s good to know the oatmeal is still effective.
