How was your first trip?

I must say, it was still a bit stressful for me. A.J did have sensory over load but we survived it. I don't know if we will be doing it again anytime soon..

Thank you. . I plan on adding eating out as a community goal for IBI therapy. I have to remember he is only two, so majority of it was just his age. Just hard for me because I would like my kids to behave in public.

My 2.5 year is not very restaurant friendly anymore! She use to be good and wait and we could enjoy things. Now she hit that age, so yes I am sure some of it was the age! Its hard when we want them to behave in public but yet their age doesn't let them. They want to go go not sit!

It was so brave of you to go out! We don't go out to eat often and usually when we do we're with family and we take turns looking after the kids. I find that Kian is (now) the good one who'll sit down for most of the meal while my other son who's almost 2 and with no delays is the one giving us a difficult time.

It'll get better with time. I too like my kids to behave in public and it's embarrassing when they have a total melt down but I had to suck it up and go through it all for him to learn. Good going mama. You are doing a wonderful thing!

I have to say we don't go out to resaurants much either but when we do its my 3 year old that is the most misbehaved, not my older son who is the one with autism. It does get better with age. But its great that you are out there taking him out of his comfort zone so he can experience and possible be able to tolerate being in a resaurant better.

oh man we go to restaurants all the time. J's tougher than Marcus since he gets a bit of sensory overload if we're not careful, but as long as I bring a bunch of toys that they enjoy (usually the leapsters or crayons) than we're good. We do have crying fits and loud bursts and jumping around, but I've never been the type of mom to make my kids sit and be perfectly still and silent anywhere except when completely needed, so I don't mind them being a bit crazy in public.

Glad you made it through!

Seamus was horrid between 1.5-4yrs old at restaurants. He would scream/yell, run under tables, throw things, cry for food, cry he didn't like it, not eat anything, yell that it smells, etc. Even with having crayons to try to side track him it never worked.
He's gotten loads better in the last 1.5yrs with work from us and his former PSR workers. We let him play with the sugar packets, he loves to orginize them and will sit there doing it for quite a while. It took a while for me to be ok with that cause I just wanted him coloring but he couldnt' hold an interest in that for long/if at all

My kids have finally gotten better in restaurants. Jameson gets very antsy still so we usually dont go out often with them. Sensory overload can really suck for them :/
