Autistic children are like all children, hungry for attention and love. An attention that sometimes we parents do not know how to give, because, perhaps too busy with our troubles, working with relationships, we do not notice what we are losing.
We lose the smile, their joy when they reach a desired goal that is in school or simply in social relationships.
But the real reason why I talk to you about this is because in the cases of divorced parents (as in my case) the parent who has the main custody of the children for different and sometimes reckless reasons, instead of finding an agreement for the common good, they use their children for personal interests.
I have a 4-year trial to try to explain to a judge what the children’s real interest is. Instead, we continue to discuss how much money does the mother need to live? They want to know how much food they need to live and who has to buy it. The father, too busy working will surely not have time to feed the children … the mother, in evident emotional desorder cannot work, must take care of the children … feed them.
Here, once again children are considered as chickens to be bred by gorging them, keeping them alive.
Here, once again, we note how the attention hunger of children is not yet taken into consideration. Yet there is, and is the basis, the foundations of personality in the future man or woman, the hunger for love!
Please never stop feeding your children ‘s hunger for attention, stuff them with love even if they may not be masters in some scientific or sports discipline but they will be happy beings, which is the only thing matters in this world.
