Parents of Kids with Special Needs Get Asked the Oddest Questions

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.
Answer: Ummmm...yeah.

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?
