Guest Post: This is a very special guest post written by my daughter, Lee Anne.


A homeschool mom explains why she's proud to admit she and her daughter have Asperger's Syndrome.

Your kid is weird. Your child is strange. So is mine. So is every child on the autism spectrum.  

We have kind-hearted, genuine, loving, sensitive, compassionate, passionate, intelligent, INCREDIBLE people that we're raising. That, my friends, is something we all should be very proud of.


Unfortunately, not many people are proud to admit who their child is. 

Many people want to try to hide it from the world. They don't want to "label" their child in eyes of others. They don't want other children, parents, teachers, or random strangers looking at their child as the autistic kid.

But why not? Why hide that? 

You and I know our kids will never get away from it. They will not suddenly wake up one day neurologically "normal." I know this because I have yet to wake up neurologically "normal." 

I have Asperger's and I am completely happy to tell others. I also let others know my child has it.

Why shout out to the world how weird your child is?

10 Things You Should Know About Aspies


Aspie is a nickname of sorts for someone who has Aspergers Syndrome. Asperger's is a high functioning form of autism. 

Like all forms, it's on a spectrum. 

Some aspies are higher functioning than others. The higher-functioning, the fewer symptoms exist in that person.

A homeschool mom confesses something to her readers: Her children have bipolar disorder.

Dear Readers,

I've held back from being totally open with you. 

When I began this blog almost 4 years ago, I was homeschooling two little girls. Two perfectly "normal" little girls. In my story of our homeschool journey, I mentioned that my son had suffered with A.D.H.D. and the problems in public school that led us to homeschooling nearly 14 years ago. Other than that one "special need," which I no longer was dealing with, I had no other "special needs" children.

At least I didn't think so.
