Have any of you wanted to put your kids in Special Olympics just to have a family member or spouse get upset and say that you can't do that because it is only for the kids with obvious disablities, in all areas.
I am asking this because there was a flyer sent home about Special Olympics and I was thinking about checking it out and if it would fit into the schedule I'd see about putting Lina in one of the programs. I told DH about it and showed him the flyer and he said NO. I asked why and he said that she is not a child that needs to be in the S.O. that she has too much advantage on those kids. I was astonished at what he said and after talking/argueing mildly about it I just left it.
So I'm just curious if any of you have dealt with this subject and if it was a sticky one.
