Discipleship and Autism

Greenegem shared about how she had to go to the hospital and how her son was diagnosed with autism back in July in Life: Where the Rubber Meets the Road. Now, almost 3 weeks later, she processes about her 2nd hospital stay and how it affected her 2 young sons in Adhesive: Life part 2.  In this post she also reflects more on her eldest son’s diagnosis of autism and how spanking would never have worked on him.  She shares some very important ideas here because much damage can be done by well meaning parents who believe that a child’s will must  be dominated.

About Hermana Linda
Hermana means sister in Spanish and Linda is my name. I was born in late 1960 to a mother who had traveled around the world and had been impressed at the baby wearing she saw in Africa and Japan. While in Japan she purchased the baby carrier in which she is wearing me in my avatar. By the grace of God, I trusted Jesus as my personal savior in 1983. He gave me a husband in 1987 and 2 sons in the early 1990's. All glory to God.

    Thank you so much for this post. I’m also a mom of an autistic son. Spanking definitely is NOT an option for disciplining him or his brother who is not autistic.
