Next time you wonder why I need to exercise and keep fit, ask yourself if YOU could wrestle a 24kg kid 6 or 7 times a day just to change his dirty nappy.
If I don't keep fit, I can't do the basic things I need to do for my 9 year old child.
Have you ever tried to change a child who locks his body or kicks you with all his strength in your face or chest?
It is not easy.
It leaves me trying to catch my breath.
I can't yell at him.
He pretends he doesn't understand if I tell him to stop.
So tell me.
What is the solution?
I have tried distraction.
I have tried getting him to help me.
I have tried giving him something in his hands.
I have tried my timeout method.
For those who have an adult with a disability who is still in nappies/diapers and is able to kick you, how do you manage it?
