This was such a difficult post to write, and to read it again today make my heart break all over….

Recently I encountered one of the most frightening moments in a mother’s life, as we sat in a psychiatric emergency trying to wrap our minds around why our 12 year old baby boy would ever try to take his own life. How did we not see this coming? What had we done wrong as parents?

  1. Living this right along with you. Our 10 year old DS with Asperger’s, ADHD, and anxiety has recently had the most difficult time of his life. We struggle with many of the same things, and like you, we seek the Lord’s wisdom and deliverance from what seem to us to be unfathomable problems. There can definitely be an obesessive, stuck-in-one-place aspect to kids on the spectrum who can be incorrectly diagnosed with ODD. You’ve had a major insight to know this is about their perception of control and safety. This does, as you have already discovered, require a different kind of approach. I offer this as another possible perspective, and a possible key to understanding and helping your son. Feel free to write directly if you’d like to chat more.
