What Bits Of "advice" Do You Wish People Would Stop Telling You?

What Bits Of "advice" Do You Wish People Would Stop Telling You?

God only gives us what we can handle.
Relax.
Giving me articles you found on the internet about the "latest" research.
Grilling me about my kid's diet, sleep patterns or daily living behaviors.

Can we make an island for autism families where we can just have fun and our kids are taken care of in whatever way they need just by thinking it?

That I'm lucky that he has Aspergers and he is on the high functioning end of Autism and not 'normal' Austism.

Well this is a GREAT question! Since I think my child/adult is the oldest in this conversation(I think). You guys TRUST ME it has gotten better. Since she is 20yrs old now, YES 20! People used to drop things in front of her to see if she could count them, ask me what did I drink to make her (The "r" word), and the classic you know people like this don't belong in society. SO I WANT EVERYONE TO DO WHAT YOU ARE DOING LOVE YOUR BABY AND I AM GOING TO KEEP LOVING MINE. KEEP YOUR HEADS UP!

1) how to discipline my child ( as if trying to discipline a child on the spectrum is an easy task) 2) saying oh he's just hard headed that's why he acts that way, 3) he'll outgrow it things will be fine, 4) It takes a village to raise a child like yours. I personally think that anyone that isn't raising a child on the spectrum should keep there opinions to themselves, especially if its not positive.

I wish people would stop recommending special diets. If I followed every single diet suggested as a cure for autism, my sons would eat nothing at all.
