We are human. We are not perfect. We make mistakes. And no matter what anyone says, they judge others.
That child over there in the corner rocking back in forth. That child in Target sitting in the buggy shaking their head back and forth. That child at the party sitting in mommy's lap hanging upside down. That child that doesn't smile at you or closes their eyes when you talk to them. Don't judge them. Or their parents.
That child may look normal on the outside, but there may be so many things going on inside their little head that you will never know.
I will admit, I was that person. I still am, but now I have a different mind set.
Don't say anything. I'm sure the parents have heard it all. Don't stare. I'm sure the parents have seen every look possible.
LittleK is that child. Those are her coping mechanisms. Those are the ways she deals with extreme situations. They may not be an extreme situation to you or me, but to a child who may have Sensory Processing Disorder those tiny little changes in routine can throw them for a loop.
We have not gotten any condemning words or mean stares, but I have a feeling that as LittleK gets older they will come.
