A friend of mine wrote about this recently on an email list we are both on:
We learned so much about this idea (humans #1 need is safety, all else is secondary and children USE the adults in their life as beacons. It is how they are programmed to navigate the world) through the awesome people we found when dealing with Raymond’s ASD. ASD kids are often not very good at all at using their parents as “beacons” and thus rely on themselves. It is why they are often extremely controlling. And anxious. We spent years trying to show Raymond that it is US he needs to rely on, not himself.

Children should learn to follow their parents. But there are times that parents are going through a wrong direction so we must also listen to our children. It's a give and take relationship. Parents should know their limitation towards their children and children should know when to reason out or to take in charge of the situation.

Aw, this was a really nice post. In idea I would like to put in writing like this additionally – taking time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and by no means seem to get something done.
