Photo a day in april for autism acceptance
Early on I was warned by the physio that i needed to discourage any W sitting. Huh? This is what they meant.
It’s been one of those things I just haven’t been able to do. The kid is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to how he sits. I know that sitting this way gives him a broader base and therefore greater stability, which is helpful when you don’t have much in the way of core strength.
The problem is that it puts enormous pressure on the knees and can cause arthritis later in life. I feel bad that he won out on this one, that I gave up, that it was just one of the things where it was easier to just let him get on with it. But parenting is all about choosing your battles.
