First post here, folks. I'm the son of someone on the spectrum who doesn't like labels. She's "administrative" but when I read about children raised by ppl on the spectrum, I get overwhelmed by how closely it resembles my childhood. I've got serious issues with my childhood, and have been in counseling for yrs attempting to figure it. Currently, I listened to the first part of "Emotional Neglect and the Adult in Therapy" by Stauffer, and I had to stop for all the triggers it brought. How can I relate to my mom. She attempted to do the same to my children as she did to me, and we have limited contact now, by design and for their emotional safety. TIA.
