I haven't been on in a while, but I need to get this out or I'm going to explode & couldn't think of a better place to unleash the fury
My beautiful 3yo DD is most likely OCD, ADD, AS and is in the lengthy process of getting assistance for her behaviours.
Everyday, I/she gets stared at, spoken about & bullied too (I guess that's what you'd call it)
I know there's not much I can do about a lot of things, and I'm usually pretty good at brushing it off & just doing the best I can knowing strangers don't know any better etc but sometimes I reach boiling point.
Especially now DD is old enough to verbalise some of the things said/done to her.
So far this week she has repeated things said to her such as "I'm different, my friends don't like me, no body will play with me, x y z laughs at me because I'm funny - not haha funny, x said I'm 'odd' do you think I'm odd? y always pushes me away and throws my things, why is z always angry at me & makes me sit away' lots of other things too that make me sad.
I'm trying to teach her to stand up for herself, and explain her 'differences' to carers, and teach her social skills basically trying to help her, but her attention span is almost non existent which means it takes time & repartition, lots of role play for the penny to drop.
I guess I'm just angry at the world, for people's intolerance of differences and kids will be kids.
I know sadly all kids experience billing at some stage, but I worry about miss 3, especially with her barriers.
I'm worried the next person to comment/stare is going to get all the built up anger from the last 20 comments/stares.. Good thing I have the day off work..
