Meltdowns are rough. 


As Dads, we will do anything – ANYTHING to avoid a meltdown, particularly in a public place.  

So……….is there anything we can do?  The answer is…………YES!


The holidays can be rough – buying gifts, making holiday meals, and visiting with friendly and family in a pandemic environment – can all put stressors on our kids.  But for us Dads, one of the hardest parts is hearing the “armchair commentary” about how to raise our children on the spectrum from well-intended but deeply misguided relatives.
