Cooper has Autism and safety awareness is a huge issue for kids with Autism. I've appeared to be a helicopter mom over the years because I've had to stick pretty close to him on playground equipment. I can relax about a lot of stuff but I'm not ok with him just walking off a playground structure. He didn't walk until he was 30 months old so I'm not cool with a broken leg or heaven forbid, worse! Here lately, he's becoming more aware of his environment and being safe. So, he's not doing the playground all by himself! I get to sit on the sidelines with my Starbucks now like all the other moms! It's the small victories, people!
