Years ago, before Every Little Adventure took off, I mostly used this blog as a place to share my thoughts about raising a child on the autism spectrum. As my son got older, I didn’t feel like it was right to put all of his business out there on the internet for all to see. And I still feel this way–however, we’re going through some big changes and I want to again start sharing some of our journey here on Every Little Adventure.
HJ (that’s the nickname I’ll be using for my son on this blog/social media from here on out) struggles with regulating his emotions. His mental health struggles have been elevated recently and we don’t yet have any answers. In the meantime, school has become a major trigger. Again, we don’t fully understand the reason. There’s a lot more going on here that I will never publish online (because it’s not my business, it’s here) but ultimately, we decided that the hell we’re going through right now is just not worth it.
That’s why, starting on Monday, I am going to start homeschooling HJ.
