I know people mean well when they make certain comments or ask questions related to your child's disability, but sometimes all I can do is shake my head in amazement.
I personally don't think that I would be able to ask a parent some of the questions that I have been asked in the past. I believe some part of me would be hesitant, not knowing how the question may come out or the emotional impact it may have on that parent.
My favorite questions/comments:
1. Will he ever be able to live on his own?
Answer: Some kids WITHOUT disabilities grow up to be adults still living at home.
2. He needs to be more organized and keep up with his classwork/homework.
3. I don't know how you do it.
Answer: It's called parenting.
4. I'm so sorry (when they learn about your child's disability).
Answer: Why? Who died?
