What I tell my kids every night before bed

DiggGoogle+PinterestLinkedInRedditShare/Bookmark

Today was a rougher day than most.  Gavin had a more difficult day, full of less than stellar decisions. I will say that as the day went on, he did better and for that he deserves credit. 

At bedtime, I told him what I always tell him. 

I said, Gavin I love you. Have good dreams. Tomorrow is a clean slate, wiped of all today’s mistakes. 

Perhaps it sounds a bit cheesy but I want him to know that A) we love him tremendously and B) that everyday we start over with a clean slate. We still have consequences from our actions the previous day but we start over a new, hopefully using the mistakes we made yesterday to help us get through today.

I know most of that is over his head but it helps me to keep things in perspective as well and it’s a nice way to end the day.

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”.
