| | Regarding Autism
Ok this is an odd question.
ffice" /> If you had a child with autism would you share that information with other parents, especially if you were asking them watch your child? We have a family we are friends with. They also have two girls and a boy. Their middle girl is Kaydence's age, and their son is Theron's age, and the other daughter is older, 10. There is something not normal with their son. During my 4yrs working at a daycare I had a boy with very severe autism in my class one year. He really warmed up to me (and no one else) so I have a little experience in the area. This family friend displays a lot of the signs of autism; doesn't communicate well (very good friends with Theron, but will only refer to him as "that little boy"), still is in diapers, does not make eye contact, and does not listen to his parents at all. We have had their kids over to our house and vice-versa and for a while now Leslie and I have discussed what the deal is with their son. At this point, if it was autism or something like that, they’d have to know right? If so, would that be something you'd want to disclose? I'd think so because even if they would be embarrassed (and they'd have no reason to be) their child’s safety and wellbeing should overrule that. This is kind of tough because, obviously, there is no way to really bring this up to them!

Yes, I agree they should disclose the information to you. I wonder if
they have found that people treat them or their son differently when they have disclosed it in the past?

they are in denial and don't want to admit to themselves that there is somehting wrong with their boy.
