“You really can make an impact on another family’s life. Just as much as the child might be feeling isolated at school, the parent is probably feeling equally isolated,” Merriam said. “It’s not necessarily what we signed up for as parents when we have a child who’s not neurotypical, and there can be a lot of feelings, guilt, sense of failure as a parent, ‘Was there something I did?’ Just having other people that you feel safe with and that welcome the parent with the child on the spectrum can make such a huge difference on the family side.”

“I think kids want to be cared about even if you’re wrong. It’s okay to say, ‘Hey, sit with me for a sec. What’s going on? How are you? Tell me something good,’” Lynn said. “Our kids do want to talk to us. I think that if we just ask questions and we’re non-judgmental in our questions, we’ll have real conversations with our kids and teens.”

“When we are anxious, we’re actually anxious about things that are not currently happening, and so we are foreshadowing that something horrible is going to happen. It’s important to teach our kids to slow down, and we can help them to do that,” Sherrie said. “The best way to do that is to look at those signs, then approach our kids and try to change their physiology, like suggesting a bath or walk. That little break pulls them away from the thought that they are projecting forward into a doomsday situation, and it kind of spot-checks them.”
