As an new Aspie mom I don't want to run away from these kind of stories. I want to learn from them and troubleshoot my own situation. So this is helpful to read. BUT I also think that it is a personal experience that is presented as if it is a matter of fact, general and all-inclusive account. All Aspies are different, just as all NTs are different. All Aspie parents are different. There are some characteristics that are pretty consistent, that's how people receive the diagnosis... But it will be expressed differently through different personalities. I wish there was a stronger review of these parents positive traits also, unless they really were just bad parents all through. I had an Aspie dad and an NT mom. I struggled with them both. But I have learned to practise gratefulness for all the things they did so right. Let's appreciate our parents. Most have serious flaws (including the NTs), most are doing their best. But thanks for sharing your experience. It is a valid experience. It is helpful.
This is a bit too general and short but overall it's good and helpful. It needs more explanation about both the autistic and Nero-Typical brain functions that cause the behaviors that the two types find so hard to understand about each other, but as a very, very basic start point it's not bad.
