You're so busy! You are not guilty at all. I know you keep asking yourself question all the time, how did it happen? Does your 8 years child have a mascular degeneration? I have a 7 years old son with autism and adhd. He is improving after I made small adjustments in his diet plus he is on Nemechek protocol. He is interacting with his younger sister daily. She is neurotypical. She has been teaching him social and communication skills. Is it possible your 9 years old is capable of playing video games?I 100% agree with this. I worked in a group house with elderly woman who were dumped at a facility as babies/children. They seemed to stuck in a child like state because that's how people treat them. They see them as less or child like even in older age.
There is also a lot of angels of mercy out there. This scares me more than anything.
I don't think it's a lack of support or love. I think it's guilt. I think some parents feel guilty for the child. What did they do wrong? Could they have found out earlier and ended the pregnancy? Can they give the child a life they deserve?
My family is full of high needs people. But I know I felt this with my kids. I have 3 kids that need a little more. I have an autistic adhd intellectually disabled 9 year old, a 8 year old going blind, and a 6 year old with extreme asthma and scared lungs.
I felt like I had messed up somehow. Like I didn't keep them safe. I know there is nothing I could have done to change this. But it's always there.
