I avoid SN families like the plague

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I feel sorry for you and even though I try, I can't seem to keep the pity out of my voice. I don't want to offend, so I tend to avoid.

I'm the opposite...for some reason, I'm drawn to sn kids (and their families). I dont pity their families, I'm in awe of the dedication, strength and commitment the parents have.

I guess I dont understand because most parents with sn kids want pity , thats why they are always telling everyone their kid has sn.

The truly SN families have a tough road ahead  of them and it's a lifetime task for many years to come.

Some people are not sure how to act around SNs. Does that mean they hate them or dislike them? No

Maybe they are afraid that if they look for one second to long they will get yelled at by the parent. Maybe they are worried that if they go and talk to the child the parent goes off on them saying they don't need your pity.

Quoting .Zombie.Girl.: I don't see why you would pity my family. My DD has autism, it's not a death sentence. We just have to do a few things differently. I don't see how that would cause pity.

 Do you see her have a normal life like yours in having a family and all.

Yep, she's high functioning and is in a general education class and everything. She has a bright future ahead of her. :)
