Family has 3 kids, unlimited judges
#2 Jan 26, 2008
Thank you for putting in words what we experience with our two kids (one with ADHD, one with Asperger's/PDD/ADHD). They're wonderful people, if you get to know them. It hurts when aunts, uncles, and so on, give unsolicited advice and make sarcastic remarks about the kids' behavior. They think they're helping with their stories of how they handled their own children, hinting that if I'd do as they did, my kids wouldn't have these problems. I'm proud of how sensitive and creative my kids are, and I consider their differences an amazing gift. Not the kind of gift that makes life easier, but one that makes life richer.

I am a therapist who works with young children with similar challenges- PDD/Autism/SID. I appreciate the care you took in writing such an article and the compassion and sincerity with which you did so. Thank you!

wow, maybe my child has these problems? family gatherings for me are always on pins and needles...my family is my worse judge unfortunately. my son is 4 and very high spirited, my siblings who also have children love to make comments, verbal or not telling me that I am not a good mom. It really does hurt.
