Some people shouldn't have children. Plain and simple.
My midgets' school added a special needs classroom this year. I think that is just fantastic! Honestly, I do! In this classroom there are 4, maybe 5 students. Each of those students are autistic and they all seem to be in different places on the spectrum.
One boy in particular likes to walk around in the grass in front of the school. I can only assume that he has an older sibling that him and his mom have to wait for.
I am not an autism expert, but from the little bit of training and experience I've had, this boy seems to lean towards the more severe end of the spectrum. Correct me if I am wrong please, but people who are autistic are locked in their own world and the depth of that depends on where they fall in the autism spectrum?
Yesterday the mother of this little boy pissed me off like no other. I'm not a violent person but it took everything I had to not beat her ass.
She was busy talking to another parent. While she is doing this her autistic son is roaming in the middle of the street!!! The kindergarten classes and the special needs class are dismissed a few minutes earlier than the other grades. If the parents of those students don't have older kids to wait for, then they get in their cars and drive home. They drive right up the road this boy was walking around on!
No child should walk in the middle of the road, but especially not this child.
This little boy was enjoying being outside and walking around. He could have cared less about the SUV that was coming towards him. Yes, I said SUV! Had his mother not pulled him back, it could have been an ugly situation. Thank god she came to her sense and remembered she had a child because I was about to knock some sense in to her.
