Post note: Upon rereading my article...
I saw the need to preface this with an explanation
of my thoughts. Some may see a few words that they deem as
inflammatory...or somehow as a condemnation of those who are
actually unique, as is my son.
Just by taking it in the implied context of this blog...
it should, in no way, be taken as a smite upon those who are different.
I love my son fully and unreservedly...
as I am sure most parents also love their children.
It is, however, an attempt to help change the minds of those
parents who have children on the spectrum...yet don't do everything
in their power to help them adapt to that which would further them in life
because they think that by virtue of the fact that they are unique...
that somehow...they don't need to adapt...that the world should adapt to them.
This would only hamper the child's ultimate happiness.
The words mean exactly as stated.
There is no subtle implied intent in this article.
I just ask that you read this Objectively.
