I’m not listens but I have something sort of related….where people don’t understand me.
Here’s my advice. I could not do better or move forward in my life until the day that my mom said that it was ok that I was different and that I wasn’t broken…I was different, that she didn’t understand how it is to be me but wanted to…then she listened very carefully. This happened in my late 20′s.
You sound like you have the acceptance down and are helping him understand the gifts that come with the struggle….that it is more than ok for him to be him. I don’t know how much he communicates but ask him how he feels, what he sees, what he hears, why he decides things a certian way. If he can’t tell you, maybe he can show you….sometimes music is the only thing that will speak adequately for me when I don’t have the words. If he can’t come and communicate in your world, crawl into his with him if he will let you.

Yikes, he scaled that wall like SPIDERMAN!!! AMAZING!

HAHAHAHAHA, I would’ve needed you with a grappling hook and someone else pushing from behind…..and then it would only be a vague possibility….

I agree…I know I would have killed myself trying to get to them at least. When the local pizza delivery girl flipped over on our rural road near my house I was the first there. I am no hero or anything of the sort…I didn’t scale a wall (now THAT is superman stuff), I ran across a yard, hollered at a neighbor to call 911 and made sure she wasn’t dying and sat and comforted her until the first responders got there so she knew she’d be ok and made sure anyone she needed called were called and notified while the first responders did their thing. It’s called doing the good and right thing and doing for others what I’d want someone to do for me….it’s called being a neighbor and citizen who cares.
I despair for this country with many of the obnoxious comments here…..on many articles- such selfish, self absorbed people full of their own imagined greatness.

Yep, you can’t discipline the disability out of them…that is the point that discipline becomes abuse….when it serves no valid purpose (and making another ******* adult feel better isn’t a valid purpose).

You DARE to have Christ in your name with an attitude like that. You’re going to have some explaining to do at some point I’d wager..and I also wager you’re not going to like the results.
I am educated and your child should not be my problem.

Have you noticed T, that Cruz supporters are finding people like you less and less worth their time to even argue with- more and more people are just not bothering to give a crap what you Trump supporters have to say? That is how irrelevant Trump supporters (and Trump) are becoming LOL.

Bingo!!!!! Stupid cop with an attitude…

Even the dairy cow has to be put down at some point…and I wouldn’t be wasting that kind of meat. I’d pressure cook it or make her into food for the dogs that work and protect the farm. I’m not a fan of being wasteful….
 April 13, 2016 at 2:32pm
I was about to say…..quick way to stop this would be to have the cow slaughtered, strung up and hide stripped when they show up. He obviously treats his food animals well while they are still around and that is all you can ask. And I’m a RABID animal lover.

I had my tubes tied…no egg can join with a sperm cell….no embryo. It got to be where it was life threatening for me if I ever got pregnant again and I’m NOT going to have an abortion and kill a growing baby. I think God wants me to be around to take care of the ones he’s already given into my charge already.

I agree completely. Government also has no place in marriage either..

Daithi you are exactly right. My parents are foster parents and this is the job. My sense is that they used this to put a stop to all the BS the foster family was putting up when they decided they didn’t want to live by their agreement to be a good temp home until she could be placed with family. The girl wasn’t taken away from her family, she was sent back TO her family after being held legally hostage by this foster family for many years. She’s too little to know the difference at this point. They just traumatised her even more for their selfish needs and desires. This girl has a RIGHT to be raised by family so she gets to know at least a portion of her family and relatives that she would have with one or both of her parents. The foster girls my mom has don’t see mom but they DO go visit grandma every week without fail and they love her to the bottom of their hearts.

I’m not surprised. My parents are foster parents and many years ago they got a pair of girls from a foster couple in Arizona. These people were creepily over involved and obsessed with all the wrong things….the woman was obsessed with getting these girls into training bras at 8 and 10 years old (and these girls were NOT developed at all to need them) she was obsessed with makeup and other things these little girls weren’t ready for and did the same continually undermining the process. These girls were more like dress up dolls for her and to feed her needs and ego rather than what was good for the girls.
My parents got them- they were taken from the couple and transferred back here in our state where mom is and placed with my parents.They had to deprogram them from being so sexualized by the other foster parents, actually taught some values and manners as what has meaning in life rather than physical appearance or sex appeal, didn’t interfere with the process so we could get on with the mother shooting herself in her own foot (which she has effectively done now given the rope long enough to hang herself- the girls don’t even want anything to do with her after she’s lied to and flaked on them numerous times).
As a foster parent when you agree to take kids in reunification (ie- trying to go back to parents or family) you go into it knowing full well that they are intended to stay with you only temporarily.
Not all foster parents are bad and not all are good either.
I'm not suprised about this. The reason why foster care exists is because there are parents that uses their kids to their advantage or just neglect them.

That is unlikely a legitimate service dog. Properly trained service dogs do not bolt like that and refuse to come back. While I don’t dispute the dog makes him feel better (an ESA – Emotional support animal with none of the public rights of a handler with a legitimate service dog) I seriously doubt it is a legal, legitimate service dog. I can drop the leash and forget I HAVE a service dog and mine will stick with me- any properly trained service dog would. He might see something when I open a door and suddenly jet outside, but he also responds quickly to a call to get his fanny back to me.
Chyme, you are very intuitive and correct in your observations. Service dog term is being incorrectly used. See Drudge's page today. They've got two article about just that. Society is going to have to learn the difference between "service dog" a term used to designate an officially trained dog for specific purpose, vs. support dog, an animal that provides "emotional support" for those that require it. The first is trained not only for it's intended purposes, but also to behave and conduct itself properly in public. The latter is an animal someone got for a pet.
You are right, a service dog is much more than a pet; their companionship is their job. I've worked with an animal rescue that homes strays. We had a service dog visit & he didn't go greet or play w/ the other dogs until he was told it was okay. Only then did he shift into regular dog mode.
I only saw a service dog run outside once. He had been in too long... he didn't go far, he was on the grass with a look that said "sorry about that,...it was that or the carpet!"
I guess your point somehow invalidates the joy one of our traumatized service members felt by getting his "therapeutic" dog back.

I remember when I was two as well…my family had a litter of puppies and I found them just after they were born and picked one up and took it in to my mom…you know they say the more intelligent you are, the earlier you remember….food for thought..

My daughter became ill at her third gardisil vaccination. Within about 6 weeks she started having a constant headache that frequently (multi times a week) spikes into full blown migraines. Later came frequent dizziness, then the hand tremors and the speech changes and the confusion. They can’t find what IS damaged to be causing this though they see it happening….she was a completely healthy, bright young lady with her whole future ahead of her…now she’s completely disabled….choose wisely which vaccines you allow, how and when…they told me the vaccine was safe…so much for what THEY say…
I know of at least two young ladies who were nearly killed by Gardasil in my mom's town of 40k. I am sending my kids through the regular vaccination schedule, but I kinda doubt Gardasil will be on that list. Giulliane-barre is fairly common even if it doesn't kill. Not many people know that the window of time that Gardasil provides protection is actually very short. I don't think it's worth it unless the kid in question is sexually active.
They wanted me to give that Vaccine to my son, I myself Have had HPV and cervical cancer from the HPV. I prayed about it and decided no thanks. I'm never regretted that decision. Going on my second year cancer free after my surgery:)
