Does your child repeat themselves?

Do any of you deal with repetitive behavior? For example, does you child with #Autism repeat themselves over and over again?

My kids repeat themselves over and over and over again.  I don’t know if they even realize they are doing this but holy crap does it ware me down. I try never to give my kids what they want, simply because that are melting down or repeating themselves or asking the same question, over and over again.

However, let me tell you,  repetitive behavior slowly but steadily wares you down.  At least it does for me.

There are times that I would be willing to give them anything they wanted, simply to make the questions stop.

 

How do you cope with the repetitive behavior and what are your thoughts on why it occurs? Is it compulsory or sensory related?

Please share in the comments.  :-)

Lost and Tired

I'm Rob Gorski and I started this blog in January 2010 as a means of sharing my family's real life journey raising 3 boys on the #Autism Spectrum.
It's important for people to understand what Autism can really be like and the impact it has on the family. We aren't a TV show and there are no actors. This is our struggle, our journey...and it's all true.

I am "Lost and Tired" and
this is "My Reality #Autism".
