Musings from an Orthodox Jewish work at home mom of twins with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

NO Filter.

y’all will LOVEEEE this one. Wilma struggles with some—er— inappropriate touching when it comes to her brother. They no longer bathe together or sleep in the same room since she started doing this ages ago—- and thankfully, so far, Wilma doesn’t touch her PEERS inappropriately, just her brother. I separate them, explain why it’s not ok to do, private parts, etc—- then a day or two later she’s back at it. ANYWAY, I just got a call from her teacher. Today at school they were talking about personal space and people not always wanting to be touched (they weren’t discussing private parts– just touching on the shoulder, etc) —–and in front of the whole mainstream classroom she YELLS OUT: “I touch my brother’s penis!”.
