My Child is Not a Zombie

Ok so I knew my kiddo was different at birth. Yes birth in the delivery room to be exact. I said to my mom "We're going to have problems..." And we do. But being the parent I am I accepted this and moved forward. My son began therapy at two, homeopathic meds the same year. By age 3 he was in OT five days a week for an hour a day, and started non stimulants. We decided we weren't going to tell anyone because of the stigma around medicating children. Then we were at my parents one weekend. My dad punched me on the shoulder, we're like that, and says "See I told you there was nothing wrong with him. He'd out grow it." Then I said "He's medicated big guy. Told you meds wouldn't change him, wouldn't turn him into a "zombie." This was a pivotal moment in my parenting and my quest for my kiddo to be accepted for who he is. I no longer give a rodents rear what anyone thinks about what I do.
