That didn’t work out so well. Turns out, Elliott didn’t want to go for the walk anymore. He’s in a mood this morning. Elliott’s disposition is a mix of Autism, Anxiety, ADHD, depression, and some good old fashioned preteen angst.
While overall, his actions are heavily influenced by the many challenges he faces, there’s still some of what the world refers to as normal thrown into the mix.
It’s hard to know for sure what’s what, but I try to be cognizant of that when dealing with unpleasant behaviors.
Anyway, I’m disappointed that we weren’t able to go, but I’ll get some exercise in at home, and maybe we can try again later today. His moods tend to cycle rather quickly..
Patience isn’t easy but patience is key.
