    My boyfriend and I are moving in together in the next few weeks, and he has a 3 year old that has been placed on the Autism spectrum. The child’s mother will have primary custody of her with us having her 2 days a week. I have absolutely no experience with children and I know this will be all the more difficult because of her Autism.

    I have checked out several library books about Autism so I can learn more about it. The child has been in school since last October, in a class with 4 other children her age. She previously had issues with her attention span and her communication, but since she has been attending school, she is able to keep eye contact with you and is no longer as temperamental as she once was. Communication is still an issue, however. She does not talk. She can communicate by waving her arms and hands when she’s happy or excited, and when she wants something she goes to find the object and gives it to you, but she doesn’t say any words. The school has said that they will point to a color and repeat it back to her, and after 10 to 15 times, she eventually said ‘blue’, but I’m not sure if it’s because she was just repeating it or because she can acknowledge the color blue.

    This is a huge deal to me. Communication is something that’s very important to me and I don’t understand how I will be able to understand her needs. I know this is coming from someone that has no experience with kids though, so I’m thinking that the more I learn from her, the more I’ll grasp the communication she does have.

    I’m also uneasy that because we will only have her twice a week, how anything we try with her won’t stick because she isn’t with us that much. After a long time of battling with her mother, we’ve decided it’s best for everyone for the child to stay with her. The woman is just not to my liking and in my opinion would sabotage anything I try to do to help this child, so I’m unsure about how to even come up with any sort of plan as for the extra time needed with the child’s development. I’m fearful that even if the child greatly benefits from staying with us, the mother wouldn’t adopt the same practices when the child goes back to her. (I know this last bit was bitter and probably too much info, and I know it raises the question as to why we don’t have her full time, but the school is a good school and that’s where the mother lives, and she makes life so miserable for us already that taking her kid away would literally be a nightmare. It’s easier this way.)

    I’m wondering if there’s anyone out there that has some advice for me, and maybe some ideas about activities the child and I, and all three of us, can do together to help improve this issue. Anything is greatly appreciated.

    Hello everyone,
    I need a bit of advice/help with this quote in my book. In the frist book (Midnight Grey) the Great Bear spirit at the end says to the main character Skarlet, “…To the mountains that touch the sky and are home to the danceing colors…” Instructing her to go to the High Mountains and find the next Great Spirit. Now this is where I need a bit of help…in the second book (Surviving Shadows) she finds the Great Eagle spirit after a battle at the end. And after a bit of intence conversation between the two, Skarlet settles their fued over her destiny and the spirit says, “…To the waters that have no end and the deepest blue valleys…” Sending her on her way to the next Great Spirit…
    Now my predicament is that I don’t quite know if the last quote (The one I just typed for you) says enough. It is telling her to venture to the sea, but I don’t want to say ‘Sea’ or ‘Ocean’. Do you think that this is good enough to give the reader a bit to think about and leave Skarlet to think a little herself in the book? (She knows nothing of the sea or that such a thing even exists. Thus leading to a little bit of questions amoung friends in the third book.) If not then can you help me out a bit?
    Thank you for your time.

    P.S. Sorry for the miss spellings and grammar my Dylexia is a bit annoying… but really sorry about that…
    I like what Morgan said, but sadly I can’t use that. The book is almost Native American Indan, and the word type is very different then what most speak today. Sorry, but thank you for your input. :)

    I wrote this story about 6 months ago for an English assignment – the assignment was for the story to be about a soldier at war (Could be science fiction to history, so long as it was about war). (I’ve already had my story graded, etc). I feel a bit funny about the ending; does anyone else feel like that?

    I want your opinions on my story (i.e. they storyline, vocabulary, descriptions, ways to improve, how realistic it is, what era you think it was set in, whether you feel it’d be relevant now, whether you would read it etc.)

    How mature is my writing (How old do you think I was when I wrote it)?

    Please don’t hold back, at all. LOL.

    My story:


    [Bold, Italics]Her eyes – those eyes, so beautiful; the deep blue sea that is hers, I am but another stranded sailor, the undulating waves so calming, cradling me to sleep . . . [Bold, Italics end]

    The thunder of the explosion still ringing clear in my mind, I continue forwards, running, stumbling, marching towards [Italics]them[Italics end]. I am still clueless on how I evaded the dynamite, remembering only that I fell . . . and the metallic taste of blood in my mouth, upon impact, bearing witness to that fact.

    The dry mud made my trousers cling onto my legs; everything feels so heavy now, it’s almost impossible to progress further. How can the Sun shine at a time like this? With the world in ruin, death and destruction in every corner, she shines, fiercer than ever.

    The Sun continued to glare down upon us, as if in a disapproving manner. The glorious Sun, a thousand million years old, seen too much of the same suffering for it to affect her; beaming onto her child, as if she was oblivious. She, a magnificent ball of fire in the sky; uplifting for just a brief moment, but excruciating for the rest.

    I want to stop. I [Italics]have[Italics end] to stop. [ItalicsI have to stop[Italics end]. My feet cannot carry me a step further; the soles of my boots worn away, and with them the only comfort I found in this minefield. My throbbing feet, so raw, stinging with every advance – perhaps this is a perfect portrayal of my tattered conscience.

    Wiping away the droplets of perspiration that have formed on my forehead, for what seems like the hundredth time, I persist onwards. I feel like I have no control of my body, my mind now the minefield. [Italics]“FORWARD MARCH, TROOPS!”[Italics end] a memory, which I cannot place, being the only conscious thought in my head.

    War, at the eleventh hour, is a great hallucinogen; I know not if this is what I am experiencing, nor if this is true, but at last I feel free. The conscience of a murderer is never clean; it is darkened with each thought, each glimpse of every victim, even more so for a murder that is forced. Every second that is spent anticipating a death is another morbid memory for a murderer; it is possible they suffer more than the kill, but that is apparently narcissistic of me to say. This is what I am, a soldier: a glorified name for a murderer, a killer of people.

    I see things now, everything is so much clearer; like they said, battle [Italics]is[Italics end] a good place to be. The ground so soft, a thick, liquid-like substance seeping through the gaps of my toes, taking me back to Autumn days, and barefoot racing; memories of a childhood, not so long ago. Distorted sounds behind me echo in my mind, whilst the vision of a blinding light, flashing uncertainly, overtakes my sight. I am moving at an escalating speed now, an unknown power taking me further and further, lifting me until I feel like I am flying – no, no – I [Italics]am[Italics end] flying! Drunk on euphoria – never have I felt something so great. Suddenly I am crashing, hurtling back down to reality. I must say, heaven short-lived is worthy of a thousand lifetimes. In a sharp second, it is all over.

    I feel a sweeping blaze in my stomach, from an ember into a fierce burning, I cannot hold it. It continues within me, devouring me whole, until I cannot breathe. I feel the air passing through my mouth, as I am now gasping, but no further – I am choking. I clutch at my chest, willing myself to breathe. There is an unidentifiable force grabbing my core, constricting its natural beat, until it trembles to a halt; with the death of a drum, dies the lone dancer.

    They say at the time of death angels surround you, singing hymns, and softly raise you into a glowing white light. I, however, was met with darkness – pitch black. No angels comforted me, as a searing hot flash penetrated my outer layer, into my innards, bringing with it pain of the worst physical kind. No angels came to my aid, as I lay writhing on the battlefield, pleading for help. But, what did I expect, a murderer like me?

    For me, there is no light. My only peace is in knowing I have an eternity to spend with my Rose, the only [Italics]angel[Italics end] I’ll ever need.

    [Bold, Italics]She is my angel, her laugh, a symphony, to which no other can com
    [Story cont.] [Bold, Italics]She is my angel, her laugh, a symphony, to which no other can compare, her caress, so tender, so soft. She is my angel, calling me to our heaven.[Bold, Italics end]

    Thanks for taking the time to read it!
