In this video, I discuss everything from limitations due to sensory processing and social anxiety struggles to the unique perspective of parenting as a mom diagnosed with ASD. Parenting is hard for everyone, but this is just a video of what I specifically go through, as it’s been on my mind lately. My kids are my everything and being a mom is the best thing that’s ever happened to me, but I do have days and weeks where I feel like I’m losing myself. If you are a somebody with autism who doubts themselves as a potential parent, don’t lose hope! Moms with autism exist!! Thanks for watching!

    Thank you! I’ve been looking for resources. I have 4 children and am now suddenly a single mom to traumatized kids who are acting even more like maniacs than usual! I have no idea how to navigate this, parenting was challenging enough as an aspie and I have no skills for employment and have never been the provider type. I’m barely just holding the house together!

    I cried the whole time I listened to you today lol I'm struggling through a burn out but its less bad than my husband's..he literally gets home and needs to be done peopling even with us at the end of the day and sometimes can't work at all for weeks. I'm the "higher functioning" of the two of us and both our kids (5yr old girl), (3ry old boy) are on the spectrum. I lock myself in my bathroom and sob and melt down at least once a day but try to leave it for when kids are asleep. Otherwise the headphones go in and I take them out for important questions. We are good parents we all just parent differently!

    We contacted early childhood intervention for or son at 2.5 years. Totally helped him go to mainstream classes.

    This looks really hard. I hope I don't offend you by asking- I know you love your kids but in terms of how much they take it out of you- if you knew before you had kids how hard it would be, would you still have them? Is there anything you'd do differently?

    Me and my fiance are both have autism ourselves, and we are really wanting kids, but, a lot of people say that because of us both being autistic we won't be able to become they may turn out worse than us or have health problems. Her mom especially almost constantly does that. But, I say just for us to put our faith in Jesus Christ, and He will help us with what we need for our child and keep us and our child safe.

    So happy you powered through and finished this video!! ❤️ Mom to two under two here and possibly a fellow aspie and yes, teething sucks!! 😂🙈 You're brave. I never would feel brave enough to try a trip to the store alone with the little ones. I love doing the groceries. My husband pushes the cart with the kids in them and then my job is produce and tofu! 😅💕

    I'm 44, and I was just recently diagnosed with autism. I don't have any children myself, but I still find videos like this one to be comforting, because it's nice to feel like I'm not alone in my experiences. Thank you.
