Happy Fathers Day!

Happy Fathers Day to all the great Dads out there!  It was ten years ago when I had my first Fathers Day.  My son was only a few months old, but on that day I saw and heard him laugh for the first time.  My wife swears he had done it prior to that, but it was the first time I saw it.  Seeing that was the best Fathers Day present ever.  It’s a great day to be a Dad.  Summer is kicking in, everyone is outside, and the sun is shining.  This year my son made me a card, with all of his awesome artwork, and I will keep it forever!

Today is also the last day of Tourette’s Syndrome Awareness Month, so I thought I would post video about TS to show everyone what these kids go through.  It’s not an easy thing, this TS, but so many kids handle it with a grace that more of us adults should have.  We can learn a lot from them.  One of my favorite phrases I see about TS is “I have Tourette’s, but Tourette’s doesn’t have me.”

I will be finishing my Delaware Special Ed grades this week, along with my first interview with a Delaware special education advocate!

I am a proud parent of a son with Tourette's Syndrome and several other co-morbidities. I write on this blog to educate other parents so they know a bit more about not only special education, but all the really bad things that are happening with public schools in Delaware and the USA. We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools!
