How can someone cast their judgement on a parent who's done all that they can do and can't take it know more. I lived with my son for eight years, he had so many things wrong with him. He was eight years old and still went to the bathroom on his self. How can someone not see what it was like for me, to have a son that know teacher will alow in their classroom cause his behavior is uncontrolable.How would it make you feel if your child got kicked off the school bus for his behavior is uncontrolable. How would it make you feel if everybody blamed you and couldn't see the truth,just wanted a quick excape from the true problem, that nobody wanted to deal with so they blamed me.Autism is not ever to be blame on the parent. He didn't know what he was doing was wrong, how do you punish a child that dosen't understand right and wrong.

This is the most important job you will ever have. Being a parent is not to be taken lightly. Did you put him on a gluten free and whole foods diet to help eliminate any possible food allergies that might exacerbate his issues? Did you keep him on a strict routine and schedule? Did you research all you could on the internet and through specialists to assist him to the best of your abilities?

If you did all this and more, then no you are not at fault.

But based on your lack of spelling/education, I would be inclined to think you were not aware or motivated enough to takes these steps/precautions.

Its not too late to use the internet, which you obviously have access to, to research the best ways you can help YOUR child succeed in life. That is your job, not the schools.

Challenges are what makes us grow and become stronger. Parents of unchallenged children have to struggle to assure them an education. You have a bigger challenge ahead of you. Do not give up. Fight harder! Be an advocate for your child but fully educate yourself about his conditions and what you can do first.

God Bless and keep you.

I know someone in the same situation. A special diet has transformed her child, who now attends regular school. I believe it is a gluten free diet with some other things removed. See if your son has food allergies or Celiacs disease. It is not easy or a complete cure but it is close. It's worth looking into. If you don't have insurance look it up online or get some books from the library. Good Luck!

Unraveling the Mystery of Autism and Pervasive Developmental Disorder: A Mother's Story of Research & Recovery,author . Bernard Rimland Phd Read this book when it came out in 1999 It was great. I don't believe in a lot of meds for kids, and I thought some of these ideas could work for kids with other disorders such as adhd.etc...

Oh there is a diet for Epilepsy called ketogenic diet. But you have to be really careful with this diet as it is high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet.

I am thinking none of the above was the desired response. By the way, I wasn't repeating, when I wrote that, mine was the only other post besides the original poster, then two appear before mine?? I hope if this child has been put into Foster Care, the mother gathers her wits with a new plan and tries to regain custody.

Ugh, who cares if your post was redundant. The topix police must have you on a broadcast delay, lol.

Aren't you busy solving a murder? I guess your branching out since your leader is on hiatus. Don't they have a topix for the town where you live? I mean, geez, who just posts in random cities. You said previously you don't live here and don't know anyone here.

Are you this altruistic about other cities or did we win you in some topix moron-a-thon?

Yes, they have a Topix in the town I reside. However, they do not have an unsolved triple murder. Don't worry your title is safe. I am no even running.

That is the reason I suggested they read the book and check on the diet. SO they could be a better parent. If they need a break there are respite services for handicapped children and thier parents.
Parents need to ask for help when they need it instead of trying to do everything themselves.

Check the links, she gave him up awhile ago. She is wanting someone to tell her she did the right thing on several forums. You're advice was great.

ANGELA!! You gave your child up instead of asking a service to relieve you from your torturous life from time to time ??? WELL!!! young woman you should feel guilty, all the way to your bones. He was YOUR CHID. He was not in a regular class room, he had to be in a special education. In special ed the teachers are so understanding. I know, I've helped with special ed for YEARS at school. If he had a accident on himself they would have called you to bring him clean clothes. If you did not WORK that is the ONLY thing you had to deal with after he got home from school. Now if you couldn't handle that, then tell me PLEASE!!! Why did you have a baby?? When a woman gets pregnant she does not know if the baby is going to have a problem or not. Thats the reason we are called a MOTHER!!! A MOTHER is to LOVE their child know matter what the problem is. You deal with it. Know one told you life was a bowl of CHERRIES!!!

you took the words right out of my mouth when you become a mother its for life its not allways peaches and cream but i could never imagine giving one of mine away because it got a little too hard if you felt that way as the one that gave birth to him you probably have put him somewhere with someone who loses patience and probably could mistreat him heres a clue for all you sorry ass women keep your legs closed stop having all these babies you have no intention on wanting if you could get your ass up out of bed before 4:00 every day the health department gives free protection and will give you birth control if its not an inconvenience for you i dont know how you could sleep at night after giving your baby away sorry if you want someone on here to tell you it was ok to give up your son so you can feel better about it wrong!!!!!!!!! i hope you see that babies face every time you close your eyes im leaving this post now so i can go to mine and give them a hug and let them know how much i love them

He is in foster care. I was going through a nervous breakdown. I could not take the stress anymore. maybe if I had a break every one's in awhile from him it wouldn't have been so overwhelming.

It's easy for you to sit their and judge me, when you don't have a clue as to what it's like, living with a child with Autism, ADHD, and a seizure disorder. Try to picture yourself everyday a nervous reck and can't seem to quit having panic attacks cause everything is so overwelming. Schools calling you threatening to kick your child of the bus out of school. And blaming you for your childs bad behavior that he can't control. I couldn't control him no body could and that's with medication. Schools refused to teach him. Know how does it feel now. you should eat shit and die bitch.

Schools can't throw out a special needs child. It is the law. Like someone else said now what that you have had your breakdown. Are you back with your child? There isn't any reason for you to get help you need. Just ask the local comp care and they can provide you the resources you need. Or ask the local children's psych center such as charter ridge in lexington. There is help if you will just ask for it.

You have a commanding use of the "I" statements. You bought the dance ticket the day you got pregnant--Let the music play
