roberto124535 While I see where you are coming from, could you feel the same way if it was your kid? Your so called "normal" kid could just as easily snap one day. Your "normal" kid could be one of the bullies that torment kids with special needs and sends them into a rage cycle. If you had to live 1 day just 1 day in the shoes of a person with special needs or a parent raising a child with special needs, you would see things differently. Your "normal" kid was created by the same God who created my child. Your remarks were cruel and vicious and I believe you may have special needs because a "normal" human being who has respect for life would never say something like that.

I was touched by this article, it was like looking in a mirror and seeing my own child. I have been doing the dreadful balancing act between mental illness and the threat of juvie. We have good days and bad days, the good days consist of constant arguing, disrespectful attitude, homework wars and "Mom I'm sorry I spoke to you like that" and the bad days consist of cops, ambulances and desperate pleas at the emergency room hoping they can find a bed for him at the pediatric mental health unit. God has blessed me with more good days(if you can call that good) than bad days lately but every day is a battle of patience, understanding, faith, exasperation, helplessness and love on top of being a single parent who's trying to fill the roles of mom and dad. My child was diagnosed with ADHD, ODD, IED and Frontal Lobe disorder at the age of 5, he just turned 11 and as we approach the teen years I struggle with the scary thought of "What if he won't take his meds? What if he loses it and does something horrible to me or someone else?" As a parent of a child who struggles with mentallillness, these are terrifying thoughts I have, real fears about a real illness. What would I do if that were my child who shot up that school and took those innocent lives? I pray to God I never have to find out. God, please start the healing for all of those families mourning their losses and dealing with the emotional scars from this tragedy. God, please show mercy and love for the family of Adam Lanza and everyone else who deals with the monster that is mental illness.
