Seeing the world from my sons perspective

In Autism by Sean2 Comments

My son see’s the world from a different perspective than me. The thing is, I don’t know what perspective he see’s and I can’t know what my sons perspective is, and because of that, I can’t compare it to how I see the world. Some may say if they saw the way I saw the world, that this was not how they saw it and so wasn’t normal.

But, whos to say whats normal. For me, the way I see the world is normal. For my son, little Mr., the way he see’s the world is normal and for anyone else who questions that, the way they see the world is normal. The view is subjective to the eye of that person.

So, you can imagine, without going too deep (and I would not subject you to that), this view is a little bit of a lighter and fun view. See, when I say, ‘Seeing the world from my sons perspective’ – I actually mean that literally. I basically follow him around and view it at the angles he does.

It has opened my eyes

I forgot what it was like to be a kid and just play, viewing the world from different perspective and angles. Watching TV upside down. Crawling along on my belly and looking around. Just looking at the world from different angles.

Like the featured image on this page, this was one of the angles my son was seeing. His perspective on the world from the small trampoline in our back, utility room. Looking through the french doors at our garden upside down. It truly is an interesting view and perspective.

Give it a try yourself

Why not give it a try yourself. Not looking upside down through my french doorsย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Watch how your son or daughter and see how they look at things. What angles. Do they look upside down for example? Then try taking a look for yourself and remember, this is how your child is seeing things.

As for the deeper start to this post. That is also true. If you take away one thing, just remember, how you view the world is normal BUT at the same time, how your son/daughter/wife/neighbor and so on, see’s the world is also normal. so never, judge or feel like they aren’t normal – except for those that do bad things as that perspective is the wrong perspective of the world of course.

As for me, seeing the world from my sons perspective, at least physical perspective, has been fun and has given me a little insight to what he enjoys about it.

Treat each other with respect and love and the world would be a much nicer and happier place.

      Hi. Thanks for your lovely comment. I always like to take the time to look from others perspectives. It can give a whole new insight in the things that we do and the world around.

      Certainly it has done with our two ?
