| | Re: Advice with teen ds
Well it sounds to me like your doing everything right. I have a DS son who is now 21, When he was a teenager, he had rules and was corrected just like the rest of my kids. He did get some slack on certain things but other than that no, we want him to do well just like the rest of the kids, He has to work twice as hard and tiwce as long to achieve some of those goals but it's for his own benift. Right now he is not in two many programs, he just finished having Endocarditis, so basically for two months he was deathly ill. We just started Easter Seals bowling and ceramics this week.
Sometimes people want to pamper these Children-(like Your Grandparents), I've been down that road with my family, but you do what you think is best, you know your child better than anyone else, you know what they can and cannot do. They never stop learning and even now, my son who is 21-he is always learning new words and learning new things, they never stop.
