Summary of the news:
Giovanna Ewbank opened up about her son’s condition in the videocast
The revelation came during a conversation with Manoel Soares
Ewbank said she feels guilty for questioning her son’s concerns.
Giovanna Ewbank opened her heart in the new edition of the videocast ‘Quem Pode, Pod’ that she presents with Fernanda Paes Leme. The presenter spoke to Manoel Soares, who accompanies Patrícia Poeta in “Encontro”. She is still the mother of Titi, 9 years old, and Zyan, 2 years old.
Manoel Soares, father of six, said he had middle sensory syndrome that affects his basic senses like hearing, smell and touch when Giovanna made the revelation about Bless, aged 8. He is also the presenter’s middle child with actor Bruno Gagliasso.
“During the pandemic, Bless got very airy [fazendo] some things I found a little strange and I started to think he might have some degree of autism until a doctor in São Paulo diagnosed him with sensory syndrome. He hears more than the rest of us, he feels more, he smells more,” he explained.
Ewbank recalled even berating him for not knowing about his son’s syndrome. “Several times, for example, he would walk past the kitchen and say, ‘Oh, what a strong smell!’ And he said, “Bless it, stop it, it’s freshness, my son! It’s the smell of onions. When he stepped on the grass and said, “Get me out of here!”. And I said, ‘Son, stop being so playful, that’s just weed’. He really wanted to be held, he didn’t like going out in the middle of the bush where we often go because the noise of the flies bothered him,” he reported emotionally.
She regretted feeling guilty about not paying attention to the things her son was complaining about and asked parents to pay attention to their children’s comments. “We had to understand, observe, adapt. And today, Bless lives very well with this sensory syndrome. But it needed my look, Bruno’s look [Gagliasso], the gaze of several doctors so we could understand his condition. I could think it would be fresh for the rest of my life,” he added.
