Oct 10th, 2018
Cops ensure that the community that they serve is sheltered from risky and destructive circumstances. A few children love the cops, however it can likewise get a little startling when you are pulled over by cops, even for kids. For somebody who had this experience, you know how your palms would get clammy, not knowing whether you violated the law or not.
When the cops pulled them over one night, his mom Adrianne began to panic because she knew what was about to happen to Jacob during these stressful situations. When Adrianne Hudson and her 7-year-old son Jacob was pulled over by cops, his mom got anxious because Jacob has Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder (PANDAS). She doesn’t usually drive around at night but she might have overlooked her speed limit that time.
PANDAS is caused by a streptococcal infection and this gives Jacob his anxiety. This happens when strep triggers a misled immune reaction that results in inflammation on the child’s brain. When this happens, the kid rapidly starts to display life-changing side effects, for example, OCD, anxiety, tics, personality changes, a decrease in math and handwriting capacities, sensory sensitivities, restrictive eating, and so much more.
The PANDAS Network estimated that 1 out of 200 children are affected with this disorder.
As soon as she saw the flashing blue lights behind her, she immediately thought, “Oh my goodness, I think I’m getting pulled over. ” So she pulled over, placed her hands on the wheel and tried to keep her cool when the officer stepped to her window. However, she knew that her son Jacob in the backseat was not doing very well to keep his calm. He was freaking out saying that he’s going to run out of the car.
It was clear that Jacob was in distress and told the officer, “Just give her a ticket” because he wanted to be out of there as soon as they can. The officers handled the situation immediately so the mom and son can continue driving to their destination.
The officers noticed that the kid at the backseat is not reacting really well with the situation. When Officer Hamilton noticed Jacob’s uneasy reaction, he told him:
“You don’t need to be afraid. Do you like police cars? Do you want to look at mine? No? What?”
Adrianne realized that the cops are trying to calm Jacob down so she also began talking to Jacob and told him to get out of the car to join the officer to look at his police cruiser. Looking at the police car somehow eased Jacob’s anxiety. Mom asked the officers if she can take a picture of them with Jacob and they gladly agreed.
Jacob was even able to take a picture while sitting inside the police car. Adrianne decided to share this on Facebook with a caption:
“The whole car ride home was my son telling me how he loves police and now wants a police-themed birthday party!”
These kind cops eased Jacob’s anxiety and he now calls the police officers his “heroes.” Adrianne was very thankful for what Officer Hamilton did and said, “He didn’t know my son had a disability. He just saw a child who was upset and wanted to calm him down.” Kudos to Officer Hamilton and his kind heart. He is truly a hero!
