Yes, I can recommend "The Gift of Fear", by Gavin DeBecker. It explains the common ruses & tactics that pathological personalities use, and how you can outmanoeuvre them. I have read that book TWICE. I also recommend it. Highly. I would also say that many of the items in the book appl...

My son is 6 and is now in his third week of online school. His regular teacher has said a few ignorant things: * “That doesn’t define you” (when he shared that he has ADHD) * “If you’re not paying attention, that is your choice.” * “If you’re moving or not seated, you’re not paying attention.” * Not...

I don’t think they’re going to let us parents volunteer for awhile because of the Coronavirus panic. I did break and send the teacher two short videos after another parent yelled at her in front of the kids on the video chat. There was a real easy way to fix the problem, so I sent the solution direc...

My son started online first grade this week. It is lucky I am not working because good lord, it’s been difficult. Our city has not included an instructional technology aspect to their online curriculum. They are expecting the teachers to set up their own pages in a wonky infrastructure. There are er...

What you are describing sounds like clear stress to me. He needs to sleep more, spend enough time in his favorite activities, eat well. I would try to help him avoid any stressors that aren’t absolutely necessary so he can have more energy. Agree you should investigate what could be happening at sch...

Yes. A runny nose and difficulty breathing are symptoms (“tendencies”) of allergies. But it could also be indicative of a cold, or several other things. Observable behaviors such as avoiding eyes, toe walking, and seeming to misread social cues are autism symptoms, but could be explained by other co...

Read up on things yourself. It will help you to understand what autism has meant in your own life. Unfortunately, it is somewhat up to you to steer people important to you into a correct understanding. Unless you tell them, they keep using whatever mental reference they already had for what an autis...

Why is this thread dying? I will not be able to go back to normal. Most of the entertainment I enjoyed has been ruined by knowing too much about the people who made it. I have not been able to interact with people very well because today’s PC culture is not forgiving of my differences. There’s no pl...

I just hope it isn’t a sob fest like the DNC. But I’m sure it will be. Sobs and indignation.

I move like a person with cerebral palsy. I had no problem with Trump making fun of the reporter, but let me tell you- someone who would stroke my face and call me Buddy would face my full stumbling wrath. THAT is disrespectful. But what did you guys think about the national mandate on masks Biden m...

I am not trying to fight Russia. Those guys will crawl through a desolate wasteland on their leg stumps and emerge on the other side to still kick another countries a**. Let them handle their own poisoning problems.

I have a degenerative neurological condition called spinocerebellar ataxia. It’s super rare, so those of us who have it sometimes become close online friends. One of the people I used to talk to a lot was a girl from Kenya. She was working in Dubai in an office job. She had just started her ataxia s...

I have to say, I actually agree with some of Biden AND Harris’ past positions on things. I don’t like the way in which they implemented things-like laughing as they did it. But I do like our political leaders to be tough on crime and drugs. They both seem to have reversed many of their positions. It...

CONFORM SLEEP WATCH TV OBEY SUBMIT CONSUME MARRY AND REPRODUCE Cswoscm. Some kind of new word Trump tweeted? :lol: All hail our alien overlords! “They Live” was a movie from 1988, which starred the WWF/WWE wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper. It was about a man who got a pair of glasses that allowed him to ...

Trump wrote excessively about his interest in and promotion of civil rights for Black people. That stuff is in all his books and can easily be cross referenced with old articles and newspaper stories. He said that he and his father did discriminate against potential tenants in one of his dad’s build...
