Mother defends son with autism against scolding stranger in grocery 🛒

A mother's trip to the grocery store turned into a nightmare when an old woman scolded her son who has autism for using an iPad with headphones to calm himself down. The woman went as far as tapping the child and calling him rude, causing him to have a meltdown. The mother's other son defended his brother, calling the woman a derogatory name. The situation escalated, and the family left the store without their groceries. The incident raises questions about how society treats people with disabilities and the need for more awareness and education on the subject. In the next section, we will explore some of the reactions to this story and discuss how we can create a more inclusive society for all.
