The side effects of the holidays can be rough for #Autism families

It’s been a long week and a really rough day so far. Kids with Autism can struggle with all the excitement, overstimulation, anxiety and emotions involved with the holidays. Mine are no exception.

We’ve had fighting, meltdowns and other emotional outbursts all day today.

I’ve decided that we need an intervention because the tension is only hurting everyone and frankly, I can’t take it anymore. I think we’re going to take advantage of the beautiful weather and visit Quail Hollow. Maybe we’ll do a short hike and take some pictures.



The boys need a physical outlet for their emotional overload and a constructive way to decompress.

I’m hoping that we will be able to find some relief for the kids, for their sakes and ours.
