Welcome to Shut Up About Your Perfect Kid

Therapy and sanity for ordinary parents of special kids.


I can honestly say after 13.5 years, nothing my daughter, Katie, with Asperger’s does surprises me anymore. She definitely has a different view of the world, and some habits that are typical of children on the autistic spectrum. Like flapping her hands.

Last Monday, when I went to the bus stop to retrieve her younger sister, I had to smile when I came home and found a note from Katie about her flapping. It said:

“Dear Mom,
Went outside to flap.

Naturally, I asked her about it.

“Kate, what’s the deal with the note? You didn’t have to do that.”

“Well Mom, you’re always telling me how important it is for you to know what I’m doing and where I am.”
