The dad of an autistic child documented taking his son to a Coldplay concert and it is fantastic. Although it is real tear jerker, I do have to say it was on of the most uplifting thing I’ve seen in some time.
“One of the best feelings being a parent is seeing their child happy. And this video proved that. It really made me cry.”
Parents of autistic children know well the daily struggles. These parents are some of the most resilient on planet parenthood. According to eh most recent numbers, 1 in 68 children born are diagnosed with autism. Because autistic children are commonly “over-stimulated,” parents struggle to find activities for their children. Concerts are a difficult undertaking due to the excessive sounds and lights which can overstimulate the child.
For this dad, the moment must have felt like his greatest blessing. To be able to spend this kind of time with his child. To feel he is winning the battle. This time for this dad and his son will be forever cherished.
A video on Youtube reveals exactly how difficult the journey is for a child with autism. The video, titled, “Can You Make It To The End,” shows what it is like to have autism through the eyes of the autistic child.
