Abstract

Parents who have children with autism tend to spend much of their time dealing with the daily struggles and routines of the autistic child. Therefore, it is possible that the parent’s relationship with their other child/children can be affected. For example, it is interesting to see how having an autistic child affects the parent’s emotional relationship and how much time they spend with the non-autistic child. From the previous literature we can conclude that having a child with autism do affect the parent’s relationship with the non-autistic child/children. The non-autistic child/children’s relationship with their parent’s was negatively affected. The parent-child relationship tended to be strained and distant. The following paper looks to examine scholarly articles that look at the relationship between parents and their non-autistic child/children and how the relationship is affected by their autistic child.
