Today is Autism awareness day, and I just wanted to take a moment to recognize the parents and loved ones of children affected by this wide-ranging disorder. Having a child with special medical circumstances is a surreal path to be on. Filled alternately with joy and frustration, triumph and tears, it is not an easy road to walk, but it's one you have to manage as best you can.
So, for Autism awareness day, please think twice before judging mothers with their children in public. Not every tantrum is a spoiled child. If you see someone struggling with their kids, offer to open a door or carry a bag. Little things can help a lot.
That's my PSA for the day.
