Last night on Parenthood's episode, 'Small Vistories,' we see Max entering puberty. It is difficult as a parent to explain puberty to a neuro-typical child, but becomes even more so when your child is on the spectrum. We have compiled several resources that you can use to help make it through that stage of life!
In this episode of NBC's Parenthood, the Bravermans face two high stress events. The first being Kristina's surgery for breast cancer, which has shaken the entire Braverman clan to their cores. Max is also running for student body president and he is to give a speech on the same day. Ordinarily, this would be an exciting time for any family, but when the child in question has Asperger's, is new to the school, and has few friends, it can be a time of high family stress.
In this episode, we see the Adam and Kristina prepare for Haddie to head off to college. They had planned a week that would be 'all about her,' but it proved to be difficult. The focus seemed to revolve around Max from his tantrum in a restaurant to losing his lizard.
