A Bailey Moment

Episode 61

A Bailey Moment

Parenting is never what we expect it to be. But most of us don’t expect to be afraid of our 9-year-old child … or to have to hide from him to protect ourselves from abuse.

This is Maiya’s reality. Her son, Bailey, has autism and also deals with anxiety and depression. He’s smart! He loves to cook. He can be so, so sweet and loving. He also loses his temper often — and when he does, it gets very violent.

This is an episode about a family navigating life as best they can, with the knowledge that there’s no good answer and no right path to follow.
