What do I say?

Most of the time, I fight the good fight..I battle with others over the well being of my son. I inform them about his way of thinking and his personality. Sometimes I get through and sometimes I don't. Most of the time I don't care either way, unless you are going to have daily interaction with my son. Then you  better get it..YOU better change the way you think about him because he's not. I'm not saying give in to everything he wants and accept the meltdowns but learn that the meltdowns are caused by something. Whether it be a sensory overload or not understanding what is going on and not being able to "handle" it. Sometimes it is because he doesn't have the coping skills to handle the things "normal" kids do.
What do I say to those people who think that I'm not doing a good job and they are family?  What do I tell them when they don't think I'm doing enough or that I'm playing favorites.
I know that I'm trying and doing the best I can RIGHT NOW. It might not be the best I have tomorrow or the next day but for right now, it's what I got. I'm still learning everyday, and the knowledge I'm gaining will help me tomorrow.
I'm not sure what I can say to those who think that I'm doing it wrong or not doing enough. They don't walk in my shoes on a daily basis..They might get a glimpse of what I deal with when they spend time with him but it's not an everyday thing. What they see is only a portion. Sure, my attitude and patience would be better if I only had to deal with it for a little while, not 24/7.
I think that I will just keep my mouth shut and wait for the right words and the right time to express how I feel.
