Topic: TELECONFERENCE: How do I stay sane and stop rescuing my “Aspies”?
Tuesday July 16, 2019, 2:00pm-2:30pm PDT
How many times have you given up in exasperation because there seem to be no natural and logical consequences to “nudge” your “Aspie” along to do things correctly and in a timely manner? Such as to get the taxes filed, or get your child to the dentist when you are out of town?
You’ve tried plenty. You’ve made color coded paper schedules. You’ve taped messages to the bathroom mirror. You’ve coded reminders into your “Aspie’s” phone. You’ve even enlisted the kids and your friends to remind your spouse. In other words you have run yourself ragged trying to keep up.
And you’re angry about this too. Why is it your job to get everything organized and done on time. Where’s the negative incentive (i.e. those natural and logical consequences) that we respond to, but they don’t?
You can’t just stop life and get off the merry-go-round. But you need a better plan than this. That’s what we’ll talk about on this summer call. How to reorganize your thinking, not just the household.
