Your child means the world to you… which is why you hate to admit that it’s been difficult to understand and emphatize with them at times. You’ve read parenting books or sought support from friends, but remain to be at a loss about how to help them. You feel disconnected and you can’t begin to describe the pain of seeing them struggle with their experiences, emotions, and identity. I relate to this as a sibling to my autistic brother whose struggles about fitting in I have witnessed and journeyed with. I was consumed by the question “What else can I do to support him?” and I found the answer in the work I do today.
