I had my children at Chucky Cheeses today, which they loved, however, my autistic son got away from my sight as I was giving my other 2 children tokens. As I frantically looked for him, I saw him being pulled by a young boy pulling on my sons arms screaming at him saying "NOOO!! I told you that you can't go up the sliding board the wrong way!!!" My son (3 1/2) was frustrated, irritated & confused by this as he struggled to get away from this child & get into the bottom of that slide. My heart just sunk as I saw this & trying to explain this to another child is next to impossible. I couldn't help but stop & pray to God at that moment to PLEASSSE let me live a long life so I can continue to help this child when he gets in situations like this. My son looks normal & also is as big as 5 year olds, so I'm beginning to see that it's going to be a long road ahead. Thanks for listening & helping me get this off my chest as I am sitting here crying typing this.
