Quoting 8 til Gwen:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Minion:</b>" I don't think she was trying to be mean. She was ... [snip!] ... I don't care. There's no call to talk about a child that way at all, much less a mentally disabled one."
I've never really dealt with anyone mentally disabled before SO's uncle started living with us and I apologize if I didn't use the "politically correct" term, hell I didn't even know the "term" was changed.
Unless you live next to this family, do not call me a bitch. On numerous counts has this child walked into our home, pissed on our lawn and porch chairs, broke 2 porch swings, curses like a sailor, humps the tree, yells obscene things through the walls, bangs the walls like he's wrestling a man in there, started a verbal fight with me, as well as my SO, and so has his mother, cursed me out, antagonized me, my SO and even had the nerve to say my DS was "ugly" when we first brought him home, cursed my SO out, cursed my mother out, and instigates fights. And he's only what, 12/13? maybe younger. I'm not too sure.
Like I said I have no no more remorse for this child anymore. I wasn't ignorant in the beginning when we first lived here, I was nice and understanding, now - I'm smurfing mad and annoyed. I'm sorry if that makes me seem like a bitch, but I'm not going to let some kid walk into my home, get a mouth with me for no reason, curse me out, antagonize me, and be obscene when I have family parties outside all because he is mentally handicapped. There IS a limit with how far the excuse "oh, he's mentally handicapped," can go.
I'm sorry, but his mother should STOP smoking her crack, and be a mother and discipline her child as best as she can in her situation. Just because someone has a handicap, be it physical or mental, it doesn't give them a "free ride" to say, do and act as they please. Or at least to the extent I am explaining here.
I understand living with and having someone like that in your family. SO's uncle is like that and lives with us. But he does have self control, to a point (and that point is hard to reach).
