These Are All The Things My Parent’s Ableism Robbed From Me

Parenting Autistic Children With Love & Acceptance

There have been many posts from parents lamenting the things that their child’s disability apparently “robbed” them of.  Every child deserves to be treated with love, acceptance, respect and dignity by their parents.  When your child is Autistic, that does not mean you get a “pass” on those things.  Having a disabled child will only “rob” you if you insist on measuring your child’s worth based on how well they can do things just like everybody else.   Disability will not “rob” you, but unchecked ableism certainly will rob both you and your child of a beautiful and loving relationship.
