Look at this cheeky face! The Health Visitor came this morning, and she was absolutely brilliant. To be honest, I wasn't holding a great deal of hope, but she couldn't have been more understanding. I couldn't have wished for anymore from today. It turns out, going to the GP about Stanley was the best decision I have made in a long time, things are being put in place, and everyone is helping. It reassures me that this isn't down to our parenting, and that there are clearly things going on with Stanley that he's going to need a little support with as he grows. I couldn't be happier with how things are progressing for him, and the supportive people that we have found around us. I'm certainly less anxious about him making transitions, just knowing that we have this support in place for him. The Health Visitor suggested that Stanley appears as though he could also have Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA), she advised that I have a read about it… something I had never considered before…
