Watch: “Educate yourselves before you judge” – mother of child with autism

A mother whose child has autism has posted an emotional video on Facebook asking people not to judge when they do not know the full story.

During the video, Alexia Chopping says that she heard some people saying that she is not able to control her child.

“It is very, very sad that some people don’t even begin to understand… like, today, he hit me in my face because he was frustrated, he couldn’t talk, and he got something in his eye, so people shouldn’t judge at all, because they don’t know what we are going through. It’s tough, it’s very challenging… People should educated themselves before they judge,” she says, adding, “You’ve got to have stamina to take what we take.”
