I’m not autistic, but I’ve had loads of success in explaining to my mom or dad that something they do gives me anxiety and asking them not to do it. Sometimes they won’t understand but will still do their best to stop. Really, it’s a matter of communication. If I don’t tell them what’s wrong, they don’t know that they need to stop.
How do you explain things? Like, how do you bring it up and what kinds of things do you say?
