No parent likes to see their child struggle

It was a rough night. Emmett only ended up falling asleep in our bed, and that ultimately sent me to the couch. I’m okay with that because it meant that he got some sleep and wasn’t up all night.

I’m hoping that we can help him through this because he’s clearly struggling with everything that’s happened over the last couple of weeks and I certainly can’t blame him. I know it’s been tough for me, and I have a plethora of coping skills he has yet to develop.

So far today, he had quite a few emotional outbursts. It’s not like emotional outbursts are uncommon for him, but these are not triggered by things that would normally trigger him, like more sensory oriented events. He’s miserable, and I hate seeing him like this. No parent likes to see their child struggle with life, and Autism parents are no different.
