I was told about independence a few month ago with mother who has an autistic child.
With the independence，according to a Dictionary,
「Do not take the rule from others and help」
「Live apart from others alone」
I heard to her, Do you think about what does independence of your child?
I wonder why such heard that but she was smiling to me.
She said that my child must live as alone as possible.
but,She hope that someone be able to keep an eye on him.
I must make a effort for her children.
I think such a thing still all the time.
