Thank you for your offers for help. Cody is 10 and in 3rd grade. He is in a public school but I have to tell you it is a fantastic school and he
does have a full time Ed Tech, or BHP with him through the day.
I'm not sure how much you have read here and it makes it hard to know where to begin when someone new comes to me with offers for help. To be honest
I'm kind of losing sight of what I am asking help with.
The reason Cody and I are sitting on an ET/UFO sight is because we as a family had an encounter with one. Cody is enthralled with what happen and was
going through a stretch when I first came here when he was insisting on grilling all of us at home to talk about what we had seen. We also started
watching the ancient aliens series on Netflix. Cody is now absolutly convinced that "We are not alone!" And we all have to support him with this
because we were there too. But now it has turned into this hush hush issue because he talks about it with his friends at school and relatives and his
friends pastor...do you see where I'm going with this.
I'm still here writing about it I think more for myself now then Cody. The more I think about it the more I think that we may all be suffering from
post traumatic stress.
I have been able to bump Cody's record onto other interests and computer related programs to watch on Netflix. We don't watch cable tv, so we use
the computers if we want to watch a program of some kind. Myself, my oldest son and his girlfriend started watching the Ancient Aliens series on
Netflix. Cody walked in on it and from the moment those men started talking he went absolute tunnel vision on that series. He understands that what
they are saying are "theories" he gets that...but what makes it hard is that we have these extremely intelligent people talking about there theories
that seem ...extremely plausible! They make sense in many ways. And to Cody, they make even as much sense as Santa never made sense.
So...because Cody's autism affects him most in his social behaviors, meaning being very impulsive about the things he says but also because we saw
something incredible and he just doesn't understand why we just want to hush the whole thing up. At least while he's in school, or before the
pastor tells him we were being chased by demons. Well, Cody apparently told the pastor he was being silly and walked away.
I was suppose to be writing about it tonight...but I swear every time I try to write about that night, I just freeze. Goodness knows I can bang out
2000 keystrokes when I type about anything else...but...
I don't know. I don't even know what help I'm asking for. I can't make the world believe him, and I can't make him understand why. His sister
is horrified and does not want to talk about it all or his brother will snatch him up and start a wrestling/tickle match just to "bump his record"
and we move on to Mythbusters or one of his dinosaur books. Or whatever...anything.
The more I type about it the more I start to think, there is no easy answer to this, no way out I guess. But just to love him and cope with it as
best as we can.
I guess that's about as far as I will take it tonight. People have been telling me...LET HIM LEARN! And I do. The tricky part is trying to make
him understand that the teacher and his friends are not going to listen and take him seriously when he talks about the little golden airplane that
they made fly! And that the aliens designed it thousands of years ago. And that's just a small example.
Do you see...?
So, I thank you and it's nice to know how many people have been so generous here with their time and advice. Still, as a parent, how do you teach
them in truth and responsibility that YES there are lights in the sky Cody, all over the world. But no, I don't really know why. I just wish this
country would climb on board with the rest of the world in Disclosure and THEN we will feel like we have more solid ground to stand on.
Sooo....as an educator, if Cody came to you in front of all his peers and asked you if you believed in ET's, what would you say? With all those
little eyes staring up at you...Or the checkout lady in Walmart, or to the new neighbors moving in next door.
This is what we need help with the most. Allowing him to believe in what he believes...because we were all there and can not deny what we saw, and
then let him look back and try to understand why they were here, and why they have come back, or if they ever really left.
