A good chunk of people who know us know about our son Tyler and the havoc he causes to this family. We have spent almost six years cajoling, hospitalizing, begging, fighting, etc in trying to get him to function reasonably within this family.
I also know there are many people who think we are too harsh, or who need to just “shut up” and let Tyler be who he is. And I know for a fact those people are idiots.
DeAnn was looking around tonight and found this letter from attachment.org which absolutely captures Tyler perfectly. For those of you who think we may be too harsh or not caring enough, please take ten minutes out of your lives and read through it. Then feel free to call us back and tell us we’re bad parents, or at least have your name removed from the idiot list. 🙂
