I think you should send that in to the paper and have them print it on one of their slower news days. That was so eloquent and perfect. Thank you for reminding us that a book is more than just the front cover

That was so wonderfully written. As a former home based therapist for children with autism, I do know the looks (and comments) that you are talking about. I want to congratulate you on having the strength and patience to continue to endure those who are so judgmental in order to help your children learn how to interact in the outside world. Without being in it, they can never learn. Your children are very blessed to have you in their lives.

Re: PSA: Give people a chance before you judge them

I am ashamed to admit that i used to be one of "those" parents mumbling under my breath about how out of control your (general your) kids were. I spent some time with a mother with a child like your son and i realize that it can be tough, and you are doing what you can. I am a ton more understanding now. Hugs mama.

Re: PSA: Give people a chance before you judge them

Very well said mama.. and I totally agree.. just look at my quote under my AVI.

I deal with issues out of my control also with my 6 year old who has endless amounts of energy and is quite impulsive. I feel like at times, I'm either looked at for how energetic he is or how often I have to call his name to keep him in line.

Then my 4 year old is one who can't seem to entertain himself so he simply screams and yells out for no apparent reason.
Which gives me the look of 'wow.. your child IS an animal'.
Sometimes I explain a little and sometimes I just raise a brow and walk away.

When I see an out of control child and a parent doing the best they can, I simpathize with them and don't condone them.
