Accomodating the whole darn world
That the decisions I make in the moment, with very little knowledge, are not helping him.What I am expecting to hear is that I am spoiling him.She has been playing Battleship and Chess with him as a way to discover how he learns and perceives his world.And up until this meeting, she has said absolutely nothing about what she thinks. All week-long I have been thinking about all the ways she will likely tell me I am doing this wrong.) So as I have sat in the waiting room on a different couch, this therapist has been getting to know my son.For more than two months, she has been sitting on bean bags with him and asking him questions about his life.The image I have of myself is that I am the mom who spoils her kids. My oldest and dearest friend actually had the grace and humility to apologize to me for not understanding before. I still fight so many feelings of shame and insecurity about what I “allow” my son to get away with. The #1 question I have received in the past few months from other moms is, “.It comes from being accused, out loud and by multiple sources, of being the mom who spoils her kids. After my son’s diagnosis though, everything changed. So, you understand my anxiety over sitting down with this doctor to discuss my son’s ability to live in this world, after her only being with him once a week for a couple of months.
He loves to play his lyre-harp during his downtime.Social accommodations are more likely to be perceived as spoiling because the need is not as obvious as the child requiring a wheelchair or hearing aids. If the decisions you make for your child are bringing him closer to the world, closer to emotional stability, and closer to functionality, you are not spoiling him. Your child has clearly shown us that he needs help to function in certain situations. You are giving him the best possible shot at living his life. Are we talking about fat midgets or skinny midgets / male / female??? you can get things like primordial dwarfs, there are many scientific names for small people ....... of course this is assuming you are taking out the seats and stacking them lengthwise. Also just because you are small does NOT mean that you are a MIDGET!!!!!!!
