Patience and ‘children’

Patience and ‘children’

The quote below talks about patience and children.

But when the child is a ‘child forever’, a carer’s patience is challenged constantly. And I notice sometimes, patience becomes a beautiful second nature melded together in such parents or carer!

Watch this documentary about a 40 year old autistic man and his caring parents.

    1. That is what I notice of such parents.
      But I do agree that some parents facing a lot of obstacles in life, especially financial, or separations, may have problems with being patient! Thanks for your input! 🙏🙏🙏🌸
