**Autism Awareness of the Day!**

My Facebook status at the moment…

Robyn Rodriguez Gillis **Autism Awareness of the Day** A child that seems like he/she is misbehaving in public may have a neurological condition or developmental challenges that are causing them to behave that way. Their parent/s won’t like it if you take it upon yourself to discipline said “misbehaving child” – just an FYI dedicated to the woman who told my Ro to “knock it the hell off” when he screamed in frustration in Target today.

Sigh…

We went to Target today.  Really, I shouldn’t have brought Ro out when he was feeling sick, but we needed water, and his Dad was away, so I had no choice but to bring him with me to get it.

He loves to ride in the cart (the big part), so I helped him climb in, and then I helped him climb out at the toy section.  I told him that if he wanted to get back in, he had to stay in, because he’s 80 lbs. now, and it’s really hard to help him in and out of the carriage!  lol

Two minutes later, he saw something he wanted to look at out of the cart.  When he asked me if he could get out again, I said no. Being Ro, and being Ro sick, he screamed in protest  “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!”

There was a woman beside us.  She leaned into his face, and without giving me a chance to properly correct my own son, she YELLED, “KNOCK IT THE HELL OFF!”

Hmm.  Ohhh…this is not a good way to approach Mama  or her babies today.  Lots going on, patience hanging on by a thread… Mama doesn’t play this.

However, I have The Loudon with me, so my first response is…”Don’t you EVER speak that way to my child! I’m his mother and I will discipline him!”

This trick has the gall to say, “Well, please do!”

And again, Mama didn’t play that.

Mama YELLED for everyone in Target to hear, “HE HAS AUTISM LADY!!! IT’S A NEUROLOGICAL CONDITION – LOOK IT UP!!! AND EVERYDAY HE STRUGGLES LIKE YOU CAN’T IMAGINE TO NOT SCREAM WHEN HE IS UPSET!!! DON’T YOU EVER SPEAK THAT WAY TO MY, OR ANY OTHER CHILD AGAIN!!!”

And she shut her yap.

Then, I almost passed out with high blood pressure and rage.

Oy, time for a glass of wine.

p.s.  My status had about 20 responses with offers to bitch-slap, shove hangers up asses and to “take down that bitch.”  I love my girls. 🙂
