Seriously? I can’t fathom why you want to cure my son. He is amazing and perfect. It hurts me to hear people “praying for a cure”. He doesn’t need a cure he needs understanding and acceptance. That’s what he needs. You can shove this cure crap up your ass for all I care.

So, if there was a way to help him where he wouldn't struggle as much you wouldn't take it? You would just let him deal with things as difficult as they are?

 Let's see how you feel in 50 years when your son is still wearing diapers and lining his cars up in a row.  Good luck with all that.

Really? If it helped my son in a world where understanding and acceptance are not a right and certainly not something that everyone enjoys.....I would be excited for him.

If his autism was cured, she wouldn't have anything to get sympathy about.
I don't know why any parent wouldn't want their child to be healthy.

Well I don't think anyone wants to cure people out of who they are - well maybe some that don't understand, but in general most people do want to figure out how to help people with ASD. I have a son with ASD. I want him to be who he is, and I want people to accept him. However I know that he has struggles due to his ASD, so of course if there was something out there that could stop his symptoms (assuming it was safe) I would be completely open to it. How old is your child?

Your child isn't a bad person, he is amazing and perfect, but autism causes so much stress and pain for children, it takes away so much, why would you not want to take that burden from your beautiful sons shoulders. I know a child who can not speak no matter how badly he wants to, he is tortured everyday because he can not communicate and make people understand. He can't go to the fair or the zoo or to a  school classroom because too many people and too much noise sends him into panic attacks. He cries everyday because he dreams of growing up to be a pilot, but never will be due to his disorder. So yes, I am praying for a cure. You might not want to take the struggle from your child, but many other do.
