I find it a little insulting that my mom refuses to learn sign language.
My DS is deaf and has been since birth. He knows sign language but really struggles to read lips. Everyone in our immediate family knows a great deal of sign. My dad probably knows more than I do and my step mom is always meeting up with me so I can teach her. My mom however refuses. She won't even learn the basics. I've been begging her to learn so she can communicate with her grandson, but she is just a fucking bitch and has the nerve to say I'm crippling him by not making him learn to read lips better. He does in fact take classes, but it's still extremely difficult for him to understand more than a few words at a time. I'm not going to force him him to take extra classes because he already tries so hard in school. Shes the adult, she should be the one to learn.
At this point I'm so over her. Shes not tricker-treating with us. My SM already volunteered to replace her. What a bitch.
