Here is an eloquent response to R Shmuley Boteach's article about Special Needs I posted last week.
I think my opinion is somewhere in the middle. While I do not think having a child with special needs is suffering, I do think that it is harder than a typical child and those who claim that their child is just like everyone else in every realm are fooling themselves.
Yes our kids are bright, they have feelings, they can lead to full lives but they have to work really HARD at it and so do the parents.
On the topic of attachment parenting, this TIME cover photo of a woman breastfeeding her three year old is making news. Some feel it is just sensationalist, others think the article is too critical of attachment parenting but it definitely had the effect of stirring up some controversy.
