In case you can't tell Rick and I like giving each other a hard time about life in general. He does a lot of counseling himself and so I am sure he will be a great resource for me in years to come. He just doesn't know it yet. Mom's of special needs kids have a TON of Pet Peeves. Here is your chance to air your grievances in a nonjudgmental forum! : ) Here are two of my major ones.
People who ask "Do you kids all have the same father?" to which I reply "yes". I am their mother. My husband is their father. I do get some weird looks as we are not all the same ethnicity but tough.
The second is "Professionals" who don't believe in RAD. Excuse me. It is in the DSM-IV which is accepted written by the American Psychiatric Association.
So....what have you got for me?
