A Queensland mum has hit back at a woman who criticised her children’s behavior while shopping in Coles.
Katie Marie, whose children who have autism, wrote a post on the Sunny Coast Community Board on Facebook describing the encounter she had with the women.
'Dear lady at Coles Coolum. Yes my children were rude and using revolting language,' she began her post.
'I apologised to you twice but in your ignorance you chose to have a go at me about my children's behaviour.
'On the outside my kids look like normal children but guess what...they are far from that.
'You can't see Autism like you can see chicken pox.'
Marie said she was left crying her eyes out after the encounter. 'My kids didn't choose to be this way, they didn't ask to be born with Autism,' she wrote, adding, 'they truly are great kids. You unfortunately saw them on a bad day.'
She finished the post by asking the woman to educate herself on Autism.
