Little rant from yesterday.. 😒 When youve had or have non verbal children or children with delayed speech you appreciate any sound they make. Because whilst everyone comments on how wonderful and quiet your child is, alls you wish for is that one day they can communicate and speak for themselves. I consider myself very fortunate that my children are now verbal, their vocabulary is not like other children their age but theyre doing absolutely amazing and catching up quickly with support. I had silent children for years so to hear someone complain about their noise, when theyre inside a play centre which is another challenging environment for them.. its heartbreaking. Their noise was just happy squeals and laughter!. Yes my children can sometimes be louder than others, even though they dont like noise themselves, but let children be children! We are not in a library here we are in a play centre, this woman moaned about my children 4-5 times! The sound of my children will always be music to my ears. I wish the woman complaining could have just opened her eyes to see my very happy, content children simply expressing their joy. #Autism #AutismAwareness #Acceptance

“My kids dont usually like noise but they are the loudest in the room. But let them enjoy themselves, they are expressing, they are happy.”

The Real Housewives of Cheshire star then added that theres still a long way to go to open peoples eyes to autism.

“People should see past the autism and see that they are happy children. Leave them alone.

“Theyve had a really good day, theyd had a brilliant day. It just upset me. All every mom wants is for their child to be happy. And they are, theyre really happy,” she finished the emotional message.

After posting the video on Instagram, Christine added that she was left heartbroken by the comments, writing, “I had silent children for years so to hear someone complain about their noise, when theyre inside a play centre which is another challenging environment for them.. its heartbreaking”.
