Going Bowling with my son


    Nathan, dad to 8 year old with ASD

    As a full time working dad, I get to spend way less time with my son than I’d like to.  I’ve often struggled with what to do with him to have fun.  My wife stays home and takes care of him full time – she knows how to play with him, but me, I have a hard time figuring out what to do when he’s unresponsive.  So, bowling has been a great discovery for us.  I’ve never been a big fan of bowling but it has given us something we can do together.  All he has to do is toss the ball and he loves watching the pins fall.  So we take turns and have fun watching the pins fall.  We don’t keep track of score or anything, maybe that will come later.  It’s nice to be able to go out and do something fun with my son.
