I have a 19-year old on the spectrum. We are working with him on what his future will look like, but we realize it’s going to take some time for him to figure things out and be independent. My question is how do we address the questions from others - friends, siblings, grandparents - when they question what he is doing, how we are handling it, etc. I want to protect his privacy and not say too much. I understand their “concern,” but it’s really no one else’s business. Is there a good response that will let them know to back off without hurting the relationships?
