I can't handle a special needs child I just don't have the patience. There are times I can't handle my hyper 3 year old when she is out of control. People know what they can and cannot handle and I would rather a mom give her special needs child up for adoption than abuse and kill them.

I have a special needs 5 yr old son. I don't get upset when people say they can't handle it, its a fact of life.
My son has brain damage, looks completely normal but his behavior can be Intense. My husband couldn't deal with it so divorced me. We have 3 kids but our son was just too much for him.
It happens, we're all happier now that he's gone since he was miserable to all of us.

The thing that was hard for me to get used to was the constant screaming because he couldn't hear himself talk. I learned to tune that out. But I had problems getting him to learn sign.

I genuinely wish that this were always true.

Part of speech therapy at home should be to help them know when they are speaking loud. Im sure I do at times and dont realize it, sometimes people will give me the hand signal to bring it down a bit. Also the younger the more offended, but Im older now and the way I see it, I dont want to look like a jack ass so I want people to tell me to bring my voice down.

I don't get mad if other people can't handle other people's special needs kids.

I think your pos if you're to selfish to not handle your own though.

I have 2 special needs boys. Sometimes they do overwhelm me. I walk outside. Take a few deep breaths and go back inside and deal with it. They are my kids and I love them.

I just believe in unconditional love, if my child got into a car accident and became a paraplegic, I wouldn't abandon them. Just as if my husband was terminally ill, I'd stay by his side, i hope he'd do the same.

If I wanted to avoid these possibilities, I'd get myself sterilized and never marry.

You "deal" with a SNs child because when you reproduce YOU are responsible for your offspring.
