My husband has been gradually losing the ability to judge how his behaviour can affect strangers who are unaware of his illness. Most people are a bit surprised but many are wonderfully kind. Lately he's started to relate to babies and toddlers, I think his mental age reflects theirs in some respects. In cafes he will often make faces at nearby babies and wave, which might be rather sweet to begin with, but then he won't stop, and I'm afraid some parents won't understand and will get cross. Sometimes he will approach a small child, maybe throw back a ball or something like that, but I worry that the parent or parents could misinterpret his interest. I know we have the option of finishing our coffee and leaving, but sometimes we are with friends and an abrupt departure would look odd. Does anyone else have this problem, and does anyone have any suggestions about how to deal with it?
