I felt so upset earlier but now feel quite angry. I have been told yet again that I am too soft on my child and need to be tougher with him and not to keep letting him get away with it. My child was traumatised when I left him in a gym creche only for just over half an hour and they just let him cry and cry. I said to a different manager today that they did not understand the anxiety a child with autism feels and it is not a case of letting him get away with it, its a genuine distress. The manager ignored me and told me I needed to leave him again with the staff there and not take any notice of his crying and upset. I was so frustrated by their attitude that I started crying. Do you find others dont understand and think the child is just spoilt and needing to be "toughed up"
