I can read it in my son’s eyes. It is so hard to follow the Therapist Instructions. Really!. Sometimes it is just TO hard. I know I have to and ai Need to but I can see his pleading Eyes and it hurts me. “more?” ” more?” that is the phrase I came to hate this week. He is learning to ask for more food , with the sign or his voice, whatever he wants to use, or the food name.
He had done the sign several times, said More a few others and ask specifically for “Banana” sometimes. But most of the times he decides he will stand the hunger and not say a word. Dunno if he is stubborn as I am and his sister is ( he probably is but dunno if he decides to do this because of that “quality”) or if he is just tired and non interested at all. But I can see in his eyes a pretty clear frustration.
I do not want to change my kid. I just want him to be able to survive this world we had created. To be able to navigate on it. But I don’t want him to get lost in my tries.
I don’t want to change what is already perfect.
