I realize that this is a very sensitive and deeply personal thing, but I thought it might help of we can openly dialog about this.
Let me start off by saying that #Autism alone is not a reason to fear anyone.
Having said that, there may be subsequent behavior that may be scary, for us as parents. This fear can be very real and for very good or legitimate reasons. When our kids are younger, we can better manage the outbursts that can occur, due to various reasons.
However, as our kids become older, larger and stronger, things can very easily become very dangerous.
Sometimes our kids can even become physically violent or aggressive towards their own family. This is something that we have personally dealt with on too many occasions and to say it’s difficult would be a gross understatement.
I think admitting that you are afraid of your own child, regardless of their age, is extremely difficult.
I thought that it might help those of us out there who fear the child we so desperately love, to know that we are not alone.
