It’s not all bad
Well, it’s been a couple of days since Zed had a meltdown so I’ve decided to post some things that I have found can help to stop meltdowns:
- First, if they seem to be getting angry, I try to let him have more control over what we are doing.
- Be sympathetic and don’t forget that he finds it hard to think about other people’s views on things.
- Make sure that you are not being to bossy.
- Give him plenty of warning when you are planning to do things, like say if you are going to want to do something alone or go out, and suchlike.
Those tend to help with Zed, so hopefully they should help anyone else who has the same problems as me.
Also, if you are a child I have found this good website for talking to other kids who have PDA or have brothers and sisters who have PDA: http://www.pdakids.org/
