A reader got in touch recently to ask about The Boy and his absence from This West London Life. There hasn’t been any deliberate plan to drop appearances by The Boy, it’s happened organically.
The Boy is almost 15 years old and autism colliding with puberty has not been easy for him (or his parents). Throw in the impact of Covid-19 and The Boy has faced a tough couple of years. So tough that we sought help from the professionals.
The Boy no longer wants to see his life shared across the Internet and I accept that. He has, however, agreed that he can be the subject of a post or two around his birthday, Christmas, scrapbooking or when he says something funny. (These limits now also apply to what I’m allowed to share on Instagram.)
Let’s hope he says something funny a lot. 🙂
