Children of deaf adults even have a neat acronym (CODA) so I don't see why children of Aspie adults shouldn't also discuss among themselves their Aspie parents. I would want to caution about generalizing, even with the word "some" in front of it. In terms of Aspie/Autistic/Neurotypical, I'm from a very blended family. My dad is an Aspie, but my mom, a neurotypical, was the one who seemed 'distant' - though we have a great family and we all get along wonderfully. In our generation, one of my sisters and I are Aspies and my other sis is neurotypical - though none of us were diagnosed growing up. My daughter is autistic - and my diagnosis, after her autism diagnosis, was the first. I tell my daughter she's a good person, I love her, and I'm glad she's my daughter - tell her that IN WORDS as well as actions. My son is too young to be diagnosed one way or the other - but I tell him I love him too, and he will be HIMSELF whether is is Aspie or Nerotypical. My husband is neurotypical and so is my stepson, but we're fine! Every family is different.
