Mistaking a child with SPD as being a "spoiled brat"

Someone just cued me into this disorder and I found this site. Your writing and stories are great. It is especially meaningful to me because I have a granddaughter that my mother insists is a spoiled brat. I'm like, "No, she's wants to do everything right and has a good heart. She loves being responsible and follows instructions well. I don't even see her as being a predominantly healthy child. Yes, she is picky eater. My fear is that she will have too strong a social conscious--not looking out for herself as she should as she grows up."

My comfort has always been that my daughter and son-in-law treat my granddaughter with respect and work with her on her issues. I am so pleased that they do and this information I am sure be helpful. Thank you all for caring.
