This is a really interesting conversation!
I can't remember if I already said this (sorry if I have) but as stupid as it may sound, until I watched Parenthood and observed one of the boys with Aspergers (obviously acting) I had no idea what it was really all about. I figured it was just social quirks and maybe a bit of obsessive behaviour. I had no idea what parents go through and how tough it is because it's not like you're fully autistic, you're functioning, you're quite intelligent, but you just don't quite fit in the mold of society. I know Aspergers is getting much more awareness and I think that is so wonderful. Vic, I have every confidence that your boy is going to do just fine in life, better than fine, because you've raised a strong and smart guy.
