Oatmeal… To Go

Repost This Article

Gavin unsuccessfully attempted to play Lizze and I off wach other this afternoon.  We had given him quite a bit of slack today and all he did was hang himself with it.

We were going to have dinner with my Mom tonight since my Dad was working late. We were cooking out on the grill.

Web decided to send Gavin a message. That message was in the form of oatmeal….at the cook out.

He wasn’t happy and of course had the massive tantrum, par for the course. He kept asking for things at my Mom’s that he knew he wasn’t allowed to have because of his behaviors. That was pretty frustrating.

However,  he had no further tantrums and the night went on without any major hiccups.

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”.

What you did with the oatmeal was very risky. What if Gavin had gone ballistic at the cook-out and ruined it for everyone? You should have either not brought him or given him another consequence.
