The negativity coming at me that I experienced as a child in school for stuff like having poor handwriting, fidgeting in class, staring out the window etc. Just a mom trying not to raise assholes. has been replaced with positive affirmations for making beautiful gardens for people, writing cool songs and for just being myself.
Just a mom trying not to raise assholes shirt
My son is almost 12 and a few years ago he became aware of the fact that yes he was a little different from the kids around him. He was about 8 and he said mommy? Am I weird? I said well… yes. you are. Lol he looked at me and said GOOD! I like being weird! I said you do? Just a mom trying not to raise assholes. He said yes! And when I get older… I wanna find a weird woman. And we will marry and have a weird family! With weird kids! I said I hope you do. Bc mommy is weird too and are we happy? He said yes… that was the point that he embraced his differences. I have always been honest with him that his mind worked differently… sometimes those differences would make life easier and sometimes it would make life challenging. Either way he is embracing his autism. We are a weird family and we like it that way!
You’re amazing. I have two children on the autism spectrum. People have asked me all the time if they’re able to be cured, if they ‘Contracted’ it from immunizations, how I can handle it and everything in between. My children are just kids. I “handle” them better than I can deal with NT kids because they always have a reason for their actions whereas NT kids can just be bored and throw a fit. I can’t stand ignorance. Ignorance is a choice to not research more and to just let their gums flap before they think. Thank you for making this video, I shared for those I know who are too ignorant to understand.
Be cool with us!
I’ve never been clinically tested for autism, ADHD, ADD, etc., but I’ve taken several on-line tests and always wind up somewhere on the spectrum, usually on the low end but on it all the same and I can identify on an experiential level with much of what you are saying. I look back on my secondary education in England with no love lost other than making some great friends. Primary wasn’t as bad as there were a lot of opportunities for creativity. Tertiary wasn’t as bad because there were a lot more breaks between classes. Art school, even though it was for just one year, was the best! Thank you Agony Auntie, I was moved to tears by the end of your video. By the way, I’ve been this way for over sixty years now. I’ve found a profession I love and a life full of people who seem to like me just the way I am.
