Dad, can we go Home now?

D. has always been a homebody.  Back when he was a cub scout, we went to cub scout day camp every day for five days.  At the end of that week, he didn’t want to go anywhere.  Home is safe and comfortable to him.  During the holidays there are several family get-togethers and he is happy to be home when they are over.  Fortunately we never have more than one in a day so they are spaced out and it makes things easier for him.

E at The Third Glance is an autistic adult.  She has written a series of articles on how she copes with the holidays. D. doesn’t have the same issues that E has, but there are similarities.  You can read E’s coping strategies here.
