Parenting is incredibly rewarding, but it’s certainly not a walk in the park…nor is it for the faint of heart.
It comes with an extra set of challenges when your child is on the autism spectrum. So it can get stressful…and call for copious amounts of coffee. And wine. And coffee mixed with wine.
Okay, maybe not that last one…
In any case, it’s all worth it because people with autism are fantastic individuals who are dearly loved. But life is crazy and parenting is crazy, so why not have a good-natured laugh at some of the challenges autism parents face?
This video, created by a family whose daughter is on the severe end of the spectrum, pokes fun at life as an autism parent, hilariously portraying what “autism parents be like.”
Lighthearted and relatable, this video will surely make you laugh and say “Yup, that’s me!”
Check it out!
