This summer, I was so inspired by my sister’s parenting plan that I decided to recreate it here. I was surprised how much I liked it. My parents are great role models, so I wanted to share my version of my plan in hopes that it is a little bit different than most parents’ plans.
Basically, my plan is to be a really good role model for my kids and give them the tools they need to succeed (my kids are 10 and 14). I want them to feel like they can be as independent as they want to be without having to depend on their parents. The plan starts by teaching them about the importance of being independent and the importance of creating their own identity.
One of the things that I have always been confused about and never understood is how kids can create their own identity. I’ve always taken kids for granted. They are the center of the universe, and the family unit is the core of their identity. We as parents have been the ones to teach them the importance of self-reliance and autonomy.
I feel like the “trying to make them independent” may be a bit of an overstatement, as kids just aren’t very independent. We have to teach them independence in order to teach them how to be adults. We have to teach them that they need to be responsible for their own lives. At the same time, we have to give them enough freedom so that they know what they’re doing.
I think we have to go back to the beginning of parenting and start from the beginning. What parent wants to sit around, watch their child, and read a book all day? We have to make it a point to make sure that our kids are doing things that they like rather than things that they feel theyhave to do. We have to make sure that they are doing things that are fun and enjoyable, rather than things that they have to do.
This is a topic that I’ve considered a lot as a parent myself. I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to not try to be perfect or make their lives any easier, but to do what’s best for them. This is particularly true when it comes to parenting children with autism, who are often highly sensitive and tend to have a hard time adjusting to change.
And for most of us, this is also true. I have a son with autism and I think that the most important thing we can do is to make sure that he is having as much fun as possible. I think that this is something that many parents of kids with autism are really struggling with. In my own life, Ive been a part of several families where the kids are having a hard time adapting to changes.
I’m not saying that this is the norm, but it definitely is a lot more common than we think. I’ve learned that I just always have to be aware of my son’s moods. I have to be ready to adapt. I can’t just be like “hey, I’ve changed my mind about this and you’re still doing this.” That’s just not how my brain works.
Thats an important thing to remember when dealing with autistic children. Sometimes we have to let them know that they are special, and that while there are some changes, they are still loved and loved unconditionally. Its not easy, but it is a fact.
One of the most important things to do when parents are dealing with autistic children is to talk to the kids about being autistic in general. It doesnt matter if they are diagnosed with autism or Asperger syndrome. They need to know that there are ways that you can still be an amazing mom just by being understanding, and by being able to hear their needs. Just because they are autistic doesn’t mean that all autistic people are autistic all the time.
