Please read the community info to realize what this community is about. I'll make it basic for you. We're about parenting, and how not all kids fall into that 'normal' spectrum that society loves to shove our children into. It's about how different kids can be normal too and how we as parents can work to achieve what we want to with our children.

Everyone is welcome here. There are a few rules I'd like to have though.

Please no flaming. Debating is one thing and I, the Queen of Debate, will be sure to do it often. Debate all you want, but when you call someone a bitch because their opinion doesn't meet your own, then that's out of hand. You will get 1 (that's ONE) warning before I kick you from the group. Be happy about it.

Limit the spam. You can post one "spam" post a month. This might change, it might not. FWD's about children and behaviour and disorders are NOT spam and are welcome. FWD's about blonde jokes ARE spam. Once a month please.

Swearing is allowed in moderation. Moderation is when you are REALLY angry about something. Not every *bleeping* word!

Be nice. We're all people. Share the love.

Realize that not everyone parents the same, that's what this group is about. We are all doing our best to produce happy healthy adults. Be kind to those less fortunate. (hehe - I've been playing WoW too much.)

Enjoy the group. We're here for support and opinions and KNOWLEDGE. Please post often and be happy. :)

Hey, I don't know if it's ok for me to join or not, which is why I'm posting here...

I'm not a parent. I'm a 'different child' who is now nearing adulthood and who's been blessed with two of the most loving, accepting parents in the world. They never had the benefit of a diagnosis to help them understand why I was so strange...but anyway, the reason I want to join this community is because I want to learn more about what it's like on the parents' side of growing up with autistic-spectrum disorders, etc. We're a tricky lot sometimes, and it always amazes me how dedicated some of our parents are to helping us grow up as well-adjusted adults.

Also, if I ever become a mum, given my genetic make-up it's more than likely I'll be learning to take care of an autistic-spectrum child of my own.

So yeah...may I join? :)
