Born Anxious is a homegrown clothing label with two objectives, to make the clothes as comfortable as possible, whilst also remaining planet friendly, and to hold important information that will aim to help not only the child, but also the caregiver as well when required. As an autism mum myself, I have thought about what could help me and other caregivers whilst trying to be as generic as possible within the designs, alongside giving those the opportunity to personalise their products as well.


Why we always use reins at the beach🦀🐙🦑

Why we always use reins at the beach🦀🐙🦑

So today we visited salou beach🦑 , it’s a totally different experience for ASD parents it’s not relaxing you don’t  get to sit down , set up camp at the beach , you keep moving , as Autistic kids especially mine💙 loves water, knows no danger and will just dive in fully clothed if they get the feeling that’s what they want to do , Oscar wears a safety back pack around any water, as it’s his thing, he doesn’t seem to mind wet cold clothes at all , he has in the past got in a water fountain at London zoo in October! 

The sea although he loves it scares the hell out of me , it excites him he lives in the now and he’s quick , he wears a safety rein at all times and I hold it and his hand , so a typical visit to the beach for us will be to go on the beach run around , walk along go to the shore splash , paddle, dive, swim, pick up stones of explore the sand it’s a very quick thing 45 mins of your lucky from start to finish as he gets so excited he can get overloaded  , or attempt to steal the lifeguards surf board , eat seaweed or get stuck in sinking mud 😑

i have left the beach many times in a struggle which is hard, as it looks like I’m trying to abduct him  , he struggles with finished , he also likes to walk on a straight line and today took lots of coaxing and playing to get him to change direction ,as we were almost in the next town, but today he paddled , dropped to his knees but no diving in he did actually say cold too , which I feel is huge progress 💙

Im also really happy I didn’t have to get in the sea fully clothed 😉
