Watch This Mother Attempt to Calm Her Daughter’s Meltdown

Meet Isabella. She is a sweet little girl with autism. She cannot speak, but she laughs, smiles, and adores being tickled! 

Every once in a while, she spirals into a meltdown and tries to bang her head. When attempts to soothe her don’t work, Isabella’s mother, Helena, is left with no choice but to restrain her, as she does in this video.

“It’s utter torment to a mother’s heart and soul,” Helena writes in the video’s description. “The bigger she gets the harder it is to control her….I won’t be outdone, though, I’ll become a body-builder first.”

Watch Helena in action.
