Last week I had the honor of coaching 50+ parents in my Potty Power Bootcamp week where I coached live for 5 days straight on helping parents get their Autistic children fully potty trained.
What was so fascinating to me was that while coaching these parents, mothers in particular, there seemed to be this theme over the course of the week.
And that theme was:
When it comes to Autism, a mother’s intuition goes out the window.
What’s even more accurate is that over the course of hundreds of mothers I’ve coached throughout my coaching career, the minute that Autism becomes the diagnosis, this theme sadly establishes itself.
The theme of looking to professionals, therapists and teachers versus your own innate instincts.
You allow THEIR opinions and perspectives to trump yours.
You allow THEIR strategies to trump yours.
You allow THEIR actions to trump yours.
Oh hell no!!!
Nobody knows your child more than you.
A mother’s intuition is never worth ignoring. In my opinion it TRUMPS ALL, even science.
Next time you hear a little voice inside of you that says you should look into that ABA center, or that your child is ready to potty train, or that the reinforcer isn’t strong enough, or that your child shouldn’t use that communication device anymore, whatever it is… FOLLOW IT.
Friendly reminder, you are the most important person in your child’s journey.
Own it. Show up for it. Step up for it.
