Today Stacy and Anne discuss the difficult concept of comparing your child to another. Why do we do this? There are no winners or losers here. Listen to our discussion.


Thanks for listening!

Join Stacy and Anne as we talk about power and the feeling of being powerless. Have we learned to be controlling and manipulating in order to try to manage certain behaviors? What is good parenting anyway when you have a child on the autistic spectrum?

This show isn't about what you may think. It's about how raising a child with autism has prepared us favorably for COVID. It's a comical look at life.

Today Stacy and Anne talk about addressing our fears and how they paralyze us. It's great conversation today!

In this episode Stacy and Anne discuss how to approach sensitive issues with your adult child with autism. She also discusses a website that you can look up to find out what states will provide the best services for your adult with special needs. www.ablenrc.org


Today Stacy and I unpack who's expectations are they for our children, and who's really matter. We also continue to talk about trust funds and preparing for our child's future. Join us for another heartfelt discussion on caring for your adult child with special needs.

We're back! 2020 was just a hard ride for all of us and the show didn't go on. But we're back with new weekly episodes for you! These will be shorter and more concise - just enough to give you what you need to chew on for the week.

Today Stacy talks about visiting with a special needs lawyer to set up a trust for her adult child with Autism. 

In this episode Stacy and Anne unpack some writing/homework hacks for kids in school along with the ever present problem of being there for the siblings of a high need child. How do you cultivate healthy relationships and keep things from getting too competitive or having the other siblings become resentful of the time given to the special needs child. How do you balance your own needs, the needs of your other children and your special needs child? We don't have the answers, but we have some thoughts, right here today on Moms Unpacking Autism.

It's hard to make decisions and sometimes our fears really get in the way. Who's fear is it anyway - our children's, ours, our partners? We all have fears and sometimes they really get in the way. Join us this week as we unpack this topic.

Autism shut downs happen. Things get confusing, the mind muddles and then bam, all functions shut down for maybe a long period of time. The pressure is too much. Or on a smaller scale your child will fall asleep in the strangest places. It's a scary situation and if you don't know what's going on you are prone to many diagnosis errors and much heartache. Listen as Stacy and Anne begin to unpack this from a mom's perspective.
