How to get through 82 Days of Summer Vacation
82 days of summer vacation......
yeah, I counted. For my autistic son, that means
82 days of stimming.
82 days of wearing only long-sleeve shirts no matter how hot the weather is.
82 days of hysterical laughter turning into hysterical crying.
82 days of picking on his little brother.
No summer services from the school district.
No family members to help within 250 miles.
No fancy trips to break up the summer.
No respite care.
It’s not going to be easy for anyone in my family.So the summer plan is all on me. If there’s one thing I know how to do well, it’s to find something positive in a difficult situation.
