You are an incredible mother and caretaker. There is not many people who would be so dedicated and caring to another person with such challenges, as you have exhibited. Don’t pay any attention to the losers posting negative comments. They are not worth the energy needed to type on the keys. Save your energy for your handsome son. I pray that a cure is found. You just continue to stimulate him. I am sure he is happy and feels the love. There is a special place in heaven for caretaker like you. A
your son is wild
@RCMasterification mi hermano conbulcionaba … pero el no c pegaba en la cabeza.. partia espejos cuando tenia rabia ..
my son has autism, hes 16 he can walk and talk do things himself, but finds it hard to socilasie and make freinds, and he cant cope in new situations or new places, it makes him cry, he can talk to people but finds it very hard. he speaks in a odd tone of voice. he can make it to the toilet on occasion but mainly when he wets and soils himself he remains obliviouse to it and doesent seem to notice or care. so we have to diaper him, sometimes he wont respond to his name, wat spectrum is he on?
Hey, im sharon mother of 3 kids, my oldest is 16 and has autism. he can walk talk, and do things himself, but he finds learning very hard, and cannot cope in new environments and situations, he doesent understand how to socialize properly, he gets scared wehn people knock at the door in the morning, and cries if his routine is broken, on a occasion he can make it to teh toilet, but he is basicaly incontinent, most of the time he wets and soils, and remains oblviouse to it what spectrum is he on
if i get mad at my selfi start to bite myself or hit my leg
@ColdHardTruth1, you’r the abomination
Does he bite hard??
Hi to everyone who has comented on this short video. I also have autisom and I’m very sadened by some of the crull things that serton people have sead hear. We maybe autistic, diffarent and difficult to be with sometimes. But we still need to love and be loved. Why do serton people say such hatefull things? Why wish a person to be put down just becouse there not like you are. I am glad I’m not as hatefull as your are. Even thow you have sead thise teribole things, I would never whish them on you
@coldhardtruth1 you ignorents makes my sad
kinda Mde me lagh
@norbyman2 FRANKLY, WE SHOULD HAVE YOU EUTHANIZED FOR SAYING THAT
HOW DARE YOU TELL A MOTHER TO HAVE HER SON KILLED. WHY DONT WE KILL YOU SINCE YOU SEEM TO BE "AN ABOMINATION"
@ColdHardTruth1 … How can a person be so ignorant and egoistic? Can’t you see the love this mother has for her child? And if you were in her situation you would surely NOT kill your child. Because that’s what LOVE is about. Not only loving a healthy child – cause that’s easy – but also an autistic!
YOU ARE REALLY STRONG Mrs., THANKS FOR THIS LESSON OF LIFE…GOD BLESS YOU…FROM MEXICO
P.S. I HAVE AN AUTISTIC BROTHER AND IT´S NOT EASY…NOT EASY
@ColdHardTruth1 Really? I bet if you had a son like this you would kill him.
@RCMasterification He bites when he doesn’t want you to stop him from hitting himself, which poses a real problem, since he’s quite skilled in getting away from re-direction, etc…and he’s extremely strong.
Why does he bites? Or is this what happens if you are near his mouth?
All we can do is take care of ourselves and our loved ones the best we can while sheltering them from hate-filled a*****es like some of the ones who left negative comments on here. I could only imagine the abuse that had to have happened for someone to turnout as soulless and empty to say things like that. I think these parents are real hero’s in this world and show strength few could. People inflicted with autism deserve our help, love, and respect.
I have a 12 yo w/ severe autism. These ignorant bastards tht lve comments like that are cowards, and there is a special place in hell for them. I commend what U do, I go thru the same thing, and I guarantee tht these cowards wouldnt say that to your face, for they have a computr to hide behind.
Wow, I can’t believe people are so mean. I am a Special Ed teacher, and what is most sad about having severe autism is how people who have "mild" autism truly do not know how bad it can get. What’s even sadder is when these severe children are probably just so trapped in their brain and are not truly mentally retarded (yes, I said retarded in a non-judgemental factual way). Good job mom for taking care of your son the best you can. I wish I could find a way to help you with respite care!
Your family is a very strong, good hearted, and united family. keep on your good work and God bless you all.
Why are most people leaving such negative comments? All I see here is a loving parent trying to help her autistic son.
Cold heart should be your username. I pity you.
@allenlesley66 5htp definately helps, but it’s no cure for the SIB…it’s just another adjunct to what will most likely be a life time of multiple strategies unless God does a miracle and cures him of SIB
