After a week of winter break and feeling like I failed the sane mother's test, I read this posting by MOM-Not Otherwise Specified. I thought I would share.

It is nice to have some acknowledgement that the expectations on the moms/parents/caregivers of an ASD child is a bit over the top.

An excerpt from the posting:
"you are a reasonable person who has been living with unreasonable demands without reasonable support for an unreasonable length of time."

I hope this has provided a little validation or newfound awareness. ASD affects the whole family.
