Siblings And How They Deal With Autism - Does It Have Any Psychological Impact?


By: Annie Barrete


Modern parents often opt to have more than one child feeling the need that their child must always have a friend. This is probably a great new way of planning a family because having a single child often brings the fear that the child might suffer from loneliness because no matter how much we say that parents are a child's best friend, they cannot possibly fit in the shoes of a sibling and be a partner-in-crime for all their antics. Having said that we need to realize that having a sibling is like having a best friend by your side all the time, a friend who can guide you, be a part of your pranks, someone with whom you can share your secrets and be rest assured that even if the world turns its back on you, your brother or sister will always be by your side.

All is not well as it seems because the lack of right parenting can create a lot of problems like insecurity, jealousy and the cannot-stand-each-other-phase between siblings. This fact also implies that if one kid is suffering from autism or any other disorder it could give scope to a lot of unwanted problems and increase the stress of the house dampening the positive vibe. Let us focus on the psychological impact that autism can have on the chemistry that siblings share and the key role that parents can play in such situations.

Siblings and their equation along with the psychological impacts if one suffers from autism

Autism comes with its fair share of problems and it is the primary role of parents to create a compatible bond between their children so that in spite of the disorder that tries to come between their childhood it should not create the friendship between the kids.
