I love that the show portrays a child with Asperger's. But it kinda makes me sad too. I wonder how much my son will be like Max. What my/his future holds.
We were at the park the other day, there were lot's of kids there. Sissy was playing with her friend. Booboo just kinda does his own thing. He doesn't really play with the other kids. I don't think he really knows how. He kinda watches the other kids, and goes near them some, sometimes he might talk to another kid a bit. But mostly he does his own thing. He comes back to me often to say "Hi", ask a question, get a drink, etc...
It makes me sad. I want him to be able to play with the other kids.
When were at someone else's house with several kids (or more) or we have kids over our house, all the kids will be in the bedrooms playing and he will choose to be downstairs by himself.
He loves to play with his sister but lately more and more I think she is getting to the age where she doesn't like playing with him anymore.
He will be starting Preschool this year!! Which I think will help him a lot with socialization among other things.
