Social Media 4/26/22

Ruth, Lynn, and Robbie

I was lucky when my children were little there wasn’t social media. I hear young people comparing their lives with what they see online and they become depressed that they don’t match up to the illusion that they see online.

When Robbie was little he cried a lot each day and night. He rarely napped and slept very little at night. In fact he didn’t sleep through the night until he was 5 or 6 years old. I went a few years with very little sleep! We learned when he was 13 that he was on the spectrum and has Aspergers. A lot of his fussiness was due to having a very sensitive sensory system. He also was frequently sick with ear infections and upper respiratory.

My point is that the top picture shows three happy kids, which was rare and if I posted it to social media no one would know that the picture below was our real life. Be kind to yourself ❤️

Real life!
