adventures in family, faith, and Down syndrome

on November 14, 2014

I do a lot of language correcting when hanging out with teenagers all day.  Normally, I don’t hear the word “retarded” on a regular basis. In fact, I could really count the number of times, Before and After, that I had to correct it on one hand. In a high school setting, that was promising. It seemed like maybe, the word was disappearing.

Until today.

3 different kids in four hours. Each kid got a lesson. One poor child even got pulled into my office and shown 47 pictures of Tessa all over my walls.

Every single time, it drains all of my energy.

I wonder if that ever stops?

What the heck, man??

    I don’t know if it will ever stop…but I do know a lot of wonder people who are going to educate others just the same! ……BTW, the pic and caption made me laugh!

    I haven’t had to encounter that since the Peanut was born, but I guess I will at some stage. Any tips on how to deal with it?

      My motto these days is “teach, don’t preach, then move on.” And now that I wrote that, I have another blog post swirling around my head to write…

        Consider me your muse 😉
        I feel like I need to get flyers made up on CHARGE so I don’t need to explain it over and over.
