The six-year-old is nonverbal and his mother has spoken about his struggle with not being able to express what he needs.

Taking to Instagram, Erin opened up about how she’s tired of declaring herself to be the parent of a child with autism.

Getting emotional, she said, “I’m also kind of tired of having to explain myself and be like, ‘Oh, I’m so grateful.’

“I said to my friends last night, ‘How the hell would other people feel if their kid couldn’t tell them what they want from Santa?’

“Why should I be thankful for that? Why do I have to be constantly grateful for things that are so damn hard?

“I probably shouldn’t be like this on my Instagram, but that’s the reality.

“This is heartbreak. That’s when I just want to shut up and say, ‘I just can’t do this anymore’.

“Your friends, your sisters, your cousins ​​do that because I am that mother.

“There’s really nothing I can do to help him because I’m doing everything I can and I don’t know where else to go with it, I don’t know what else to do.

“I could have all of these resources, but I don’t know what I need or what he needs or how to go about it.”

Erin, 41, opened up about how hard it can be to see Harry hurt himself.

She said: “What I might not be showing is what Harry is going through and how difficult it is to watch him put that through to himself.

“That’s maybe a part of autism that isn’t talked about or known about, that a child can hurt themselves, they can bite themselves.

“You can really hurt yourself, and I think maybe that’s something that other people aren’t aware of.

“It’s really difficult as a parent to see that and feel so helpless. That’s something I would never like to show.

“That’s probably why I’m pretty down at the moment too, because obviously Christmas is a part of it, but when he’s not doing well it’s really difficult because when you’re there it feels like it is never end.”

She added, “I know people mean well when they say ‘Be thankful’ or ‘Be hopeful.’

“But sometimes it’s like, ‘I live in hope that I know what hope is. What I’m going through is shit. What he’s going through sucks and it’s not fair.”

The mother explained that she is sad that her son may not be reaching the same milestones as other children.

She said: “And I know there are so many kids with autism who are walking and living functional lives and that’s what most of us can hope for.

“I hope so. But the reality is there are many children who don’t have full-time care.

“I’m draped in my crystals, I wear this because it’s supposed to help with depression, but I’m not feeling depressed, I’m just sad. I’m sad for him.

“People say, ‘You wouldn’t change him for the world’.

“Obviously I wouldn’t change my son for the damn world, but would I change the fear and all the things he has to face in a world that’s not ready for him, a world that hurts him? Would I change that? ?

“Of course I would change that because I love him so much. I love him with every inch of my soul.

“He’s my child and when he’s in pain, it hurts me. If he fights, I fight.

“I think that’s a silly statement. I’m actually offended.

“It’s like asking someone whose child is sick, ‘Would you take it away?’

“It’s not relevant. I celebrate the small victories, but sometimes autism is really difficult.

“This is the life of many families. This is the reality for many people who are struggling.”
