Autism asks challenging questions, begs us to think outside the box and then...Autism Answers!.

Be careful how you talk about others in front of your children. Not only are you teaching them how to look at the world and the people in it, you are also teaching them how to see themselves.

We are continually discovering and inventing who we are, especially when we're young. Don't accidentally judge your child by voicing judgements of others.

Hugs, smiles and love!!  (Autism Answers, Posted on August 23, 2013)

I'm a 43 year old dad with a 10 year old son with severe autism. My wife is an Autism Mommy Rock Star! But she doesn't like me RANTING about autism too much on Facebook to our friends & family. So I've created this anonymous Page with which to rant about autism and celebrate my son "Kyle" :-)
Sometimes I'll write something in an attempt to help/teach others in this similar situation. And sometimes you may not agree with everything I write about, and that's ok, but just remember that I'm posting as a dad, not some sort of autism expert.

Wed 8:07pm -- The king is lying on the couch watching Jack's Big Music Show.

We got home from the hospital around 1pm and he's been napping on & off ever since.

And when he's up he's kinda zombie like. The combo yesterday of anesthesia & morphine for the surgery will do that to ya. And then he's still getting his antiseizure meds on top of that which normally make him sleepy.

But otherwise... he's in good spirits, seems to be in no pain, and is not messing with the two bandages at all which is great since they need to be on for 5+ days.

He's really been a trooper thru this whole thing.

It's funny, but the king really rises to the occasion for the big things like hospital stays...

Normal things like a dr appointment or an X-ray...not so much...forget about it...those he can't handle that....but surgery? No problem.  (Autism Daddy, Posted on August 21, 2013)

Note: "The king" is the nickname of Kyle, who has autism and is the son of Autism Daddy.

Page Description: 
This page was developed by Bill Nason, MS, LLP to discuss tools that help children on the spectrum feel safe, accepted and competent. Although each child is different, with their unique strengths and challenges, their are some common strategies that can strengthen the social, emotion, and cognitive security for most children on the spectrum. Come learn, share, and support.

As your child's voice I "thank you!"

Parenting a child with autism takes courage and passion! It pulls out the worst in you, as well as the best in you. One minute you hate it, the next minute you embrace it. You steam with anger, and excel with excitement. You anguish over the challenges your children experience, but marvel at their endurance and passions. Your child teaches you to view love, life, and happiness in a different light.

The nice thing about doing this page is I know every parent, relative, teacher, and friend on here has a true love for the children. If you didn't, you would not be on here seeking to learn and share. The unique qualities of your children test your wisdom, nerves, and honesty. But the more challenging the task, the deeper the passion. For your children's sake, I thank all of you for being here for them, advocating for them, and most importantly "loving" them with so much passion! Without your love and guidance they would never be able to navigate this chaotic world. In ways that you may not realize, you are truly blessed to see and feel the world with so much passion! For your children, I thank you! (Bill Nason, Posted on August 18, 2013)
