Hi there, and welcome to my blog! This is my very first post, so I’m just going to give a brief intro to myself and to why I have started this blog. Thank you for reading. 🙂
I am Sally, a homeschooling mother to a wonderful aspie girl, and I myself am also an aspie. After a lot of struggle, trial and error and deliberation I am finally confident in my parenting style, which I have evolved and thought out myself but which is pretty similar to Unconditional Parenting and Respectful Parenting. I have many bugbears and things I am passionate about. Pet hates are childism, weight discrimination and speciesism. I am passionate about animal rights, human rights and autism acceptance (and anti ableism and ABA).
So why the blog? It occurred to me recently that I have been pretty much using facebook like a blog. Prattling on at great length about my beliefs and thoughts and theories – probably boring a lot of my friends, and at worst offending some who don’t share all of the same beliefs as me, or have a different parenting style. I really don’t want to offend or bore people, so I decided that it might be better to use an actual blog to write about my beliefs (and general prattlings), so that a narrower audience can read my stuff. So that people can have a choice whether or not to read what I write, rather than having it posted on their walls. 🙂
As for what I intend to blog about, probably mostly about the issues I am passionate about. My main interests are respectful parenting and autism so I’ll probably blog mostly about those, but I don’t want to limit myself to that. So I retain the right to post endless photos of my cactus and lithops collection!! 😉
Again, thank you for reading, and have a wonderful day. 🙂
