I’m still processing yesterday afternoon with @jtknoxroxs and her amazing son Knox. I don’t even know where to start. So much goodness. So, I’ll start a thread...
First, it was just great to sit next to a seven year old autistic boy and just talk and play. I instantly recognized myself in Knox. I was a quiet and recluse kid. Knox is joyous and bubbly and very engaging. Yet, I saw the shared underpinnings in his and my childhoods.
I’m still dwelling on the little things - like how he approached toys, how he moved his hands, how he communicated and received information. I just felt this wave of happiness overcome me as I thought “Oh, wow. I so get you, kid.”

Yesterday, an older kid was chasing my child around and yelling. When the sitter asked him to stop because it was terrifying my child, the boy says,"That's weird," and runs off. After some time to calm down, my child is back to playing.
The boy immediately starts chasing her and yelling-- again. This terrified my child to meltdown. The sitter sees the older boy's mother and asks, "Your son is just playing, and everyone else is fine with it, but it's really scaring her. Would you mind to ask him to stop?"
The mother says, "He's not doing anything wrong. Boys will be boys." The sitter confirms that he's not doing anything wrong, but that my child is autistic and plays differently. She's younger, and she doesn't understand why he's chasing her and yelling.

When I was a garden writer, the industry’s biggest priority was getting young adults to garden. Nobody could figure out why they weren’t gardening as much as older generations!

Now, as a homeowner, I understand.

Here’s a thread.
First of all, many of us young adults can’t afford to own a home.

Those of us who can afford it are prioritizing by spending money on repairs:

Either we’ve inherited bottom-of-the-barrel and neglected older houses, or bought new houses that were built quickly and cheaply.
Those of us young adults who live in condos and apartments often do end up gardening, because it requires less time and money.

But the gardening industry doesn’t stand to make much money from them.
