Do you ever feel like you have nobody that can relate with you. People are very judgemental when it comes to learning disabilities and I always feel like people blame me for my kids problems. Do you ever feel like that?

I think I know what you're saying. Some of the other moms from school would treat me differently when they learned that my son had a learning disability. They didn't want their kids hanging out with him, almost like they thought it was contaigous! lol

A few of the moms shunned me a little bit too. I figured they were just ignorant about learning disabilities, so instead of letting it get to me, I educated them. I wanted them to know that ANY child can have a learning disability! I wanted to tell them that it wasn't because I was a bad mother, or didn't love my child as much as they loved theirs. Some moms still stayed distant, but some understood.

When I knew my daughter was not learning the way that I knew she should be, I sought out mothers that had ESE children in the school system. I would pick their brains and ask them how they got their child help. I think some probably ran when they saw me coming But for the most part, they were helpful and instrumental in helping me say the right things and do the right things to get my daughter help. She could have easily fallen through the cracks otherwise and I'll always remain grateful. So those are mostly the parents I had sought out for friendship.

I know some of the looks and comments that come from other parents. I really don't care what they think. My oldest is gifted, I know that it's nothing that I did, it's just the way things are.
