Wow! I am totally blown away. I started this group 4 weeks ago out of desperate loneliness of a mom with SPD kids and no one who understands, not even my friends. I really didn't expect to have anyone respond and there are 84 of us already! This is amazing and renews my spirit!

I am so glad we found each other and can share. Let's keep us the communication!

I so understand! There is being a toddler and then there is being a toddler with SPD!! So true! Bobbie, I am so glad that you're family and friends have been so on board. Don't get me wrong, my family and friends love Logan to pieces, but they don't get it. They can't seem to wrap their brains around the fact that he has some challenges he has to face that others do not. Sometimes, I think my parents are in denial. They get afraid of this. I wish we had more answers myself.

I am so glad you started this group! So many people are oblivious to what SPD is and it is nice to not have to explain why my son acts the way he does! You already understand! The support is great and it is nice to know we are not alone!

I will say that all of my friends and family have been extremly supportive and understanding...a few of hubby's friends have had some comments but they only kinda count as human.

I just found this today and I am so excited to find mom's who understand what SPD is!!! I, like you, feel the same exact way about my friends. They just don't get it. Sometimes I feel like saying to one of my friends "you just will never understand b/c your kids are perfect". I say it like that b/c she acts like she knows it all and tells me that my son's (4-1/2 old) issue is just being a toddler. I am so sick of hearing it that I have finally decided to stop discussing it with her. It is hard enough for me to understand the difference between just being a toddler tantrum/acting out vs SPD (sensory seeking). Thank you to who ever started this communication!
