I feel that there is always something to be positive but not at the expense of being realistic. In my opinion, dealing with reality is absolutely crucial, especially when it comes to raising special needs kids.
There is a very fine line between being positive and approaching a situation in a realistic manner.
As silly as it sounds, Lizze and I are getting ready to approach a situation that many parents of Autistic kids would avoid like the plague. Can you guess what that is? That’s right, haircuts.
There are so many other things in the world my boys would rather do than get their hair cut. To be completely honest, there are a million and on things that I would rather do than take them get their hair cut.
On many occasions, we have gone and come back with the same about of hair on their heads that they left with. Only now they were extremely stressed out and overstimulated.
I don’t know what it is about a haircut that sets them off. Perhaps is the sounds of the trimmers, or the anxiety of having someone inside their personal space and touching them.
All I know is that I’m about to attempt this on my own because Lizze is not feeling well now.
What is about a friggin haircut?
