Re: Some Little League advice really needed!!
I understand. Believe me, his problems are not hidden from others. Only putting a label on him is hidden. I grew up with a handicapped brother, so I know how much people can be putzes. That is why I am a doctor, to take care of and help children with serious problems. That is what I do every day. Perhaps this is why I take this so personally. The other day, I did a procedure on a child with a serious medical problem who was bleeding to death. I stopped the bleeding and saved his life. Then I went to my son's baseball game and watched these priveleged children make fun of him for running goofy.
I expect people to look at each individual child, understand their obvious strengths and weaknesses, and not let others prey on them. And then teach it to their children. Particularly, children who are born to privilege, and who are blessed with gifts such as athletic prowess.
I have looked for and found excellent teachers for him in many fields. But he wants to play baseball, with these kids he considers his friends.
