If you are married, How many years did you wait- if any - to have children after getting married?

Are there any things you miss doing before kids?  If so, what?

Is your life now what you expected it would be 10 or 20 years ago? 

At what point do you self actualize?  Do you believe in it?

What's on your agenda this week?

For a debate all it's own, Jams certainly mentions it a lot in other debates...

Why not? They made the same decisions--to send their individual children to the school system that would serve them best.  Your parents aren't some sooper speshul classification who can never be criticized or cited.  That your parents never felt your needs changed over the years doesn't mean that PKA feeling her children's needs HAD changed was a poor parent making bad decisions.

This hang up you have over private schools is regrettable--for you.  But the rest of us are under no obligation to play along with your delusions about it.

Nice try Thardy, Jam was saying & Bord was refuting that Bord said she put her children in private school because of incompetent teachers.  That was the dispute, not the autistic comment.  That's why other/past debates were brought up.

The public/private school thing is a debate all it's own.  Feel free to post there, I'll follow you...  In the meantime do NOT compare your choices to my parent's confident choice to send us to a faith based from the get go.

OH jams, you need to step back and read the judgements in your posts on a constant basis.  Step back and read.

Distraction can absolutely be a physical need.  I'm glad we could help; I wish we could have done more.

<<Save the implication that I don't know a thing about the tasks, the roles and duites families with ill or special needs face.  The fact of the matter is their days are eased by support groups and relationships with other families that understand what they're going through, That is what I'm defending here.  You've made some pretty nasty claims, The reality is I don't think you know a whole lot, Count your blessings. >>

If you truly believe that....I don't know what to say Jams.   You are clearly not seeing reality on this subject.

She said nothing of the kind--she said she knew ONE autistic child who's untreated and unaddressed state of autism resulted in such a state, but that the child's mother wanted better for her.  And the proof of that is in the very quote you cited.  Why you would propagate such a vicious lie that is so easily disproven and shows your reading comprehension to be so subpar is a mystery.
