Cameron, who has Autism, is 5 years old and his younger brother Tyler is 2… he does not have Autism. Tyler never ever wants to be apart from his big brother but Cameron sometimes really needs his space, his time alone.
So after fighting for most of the morning, I suddenly hear this:
Tyler: I want to play with you!!! b’cause I love you!!!
Cameron: No!! I love you too but I do not want to play with you!!”
Now how, as a parent, do you get mad at them for fighting and yet not smile or even laugh when you hear this? Especially coming from a 5 year old with Autism while in the middle of a fight… it’s truly amazing.
Just wanted to share.
