Yes it is a real disorder.
and NO, if you do not have a child or you don't have this disorder then you do not know what you are talking about. I don't care if you have a sibiling, a friend who has a child, or a cousin, who has this disorder. You do not know anything about it if you have not personally dealt with it yourself. And having a sibiling does not count because you were a child yourself and never dealt with it; your parents did.
Do not assume that i am a lazy parent, do not assume that my child has a shitty life, or that i don't discipline my child. do not assume that I am not involved in my child life. I am more involved then most parent who have a child that does not have a disorder because i have to be. I am a sahm because of my child disorder. because of my child disorder I do not have the opporunity to be a lazy parent.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but that doesn't mean you have to share that opinion. You do not know me or anyone else who deal with this daily. So you can not assume anything.
Do not assume my kid is the bad kid. My child isn't a bad kid. He has a disorder but that does not make him a bad kid. these children get label enough as it is.
Does it make you feel better to belittle someone about something you don't know anything about? does it make you feel better to degrade their parenting all because their child has a disorder that neither parents or child can control.
We all have our obstacles to cross and some are a little different than others. Parents who deal with children with these disorder are very strong parents because it isn't anyone who can deal with this, it take a very special person to deal with it.
Yes these children can learn control but it take years to learn the control and it doesn't happen overnight.
Yes my child will remain in school and i will not homeschool my child because some of you think my chlid shouldn't be in public school. He deserve a education as much as the next kid.
