It could be better but it could definitely be worse

Gavin’s been home for 2 full days now and we are already having a few issues.  Gavin’s not used to having a lot of rules.

In our house, we have to have rules because kids on the Autism Spectrum need ridged routine, firm boundaries and as much predictability as possible.

Gavin’s already getting frustrated at times because we don’t allow him to play Sonic games on his tablet. 

For many years,  Gavin was very, very into everything Sonic.  It was so bad that it interfered with everyday life.  We basically had to ban Sonic from the house because Gavin just got way, way to into it and became so incredibly intense, it wasn’t healthy. 

Since the dawn of the autonomic dysfunction, we have to be extremely careful because the level of intensity he demonstrates while playing one of these games, is a sure fire way to go into another autonomic crisis. 

The only thing else really wants to talk about is Sonic and it’s already driving me crazy. 

For the most part, he’s doing okay.  We just have a few speed bumps and a bit of attitude….

It could be better but it could definitely be worse.
