What a wonderful child-about-to-be-a-man! Congratulations JB.

I have a distant relative (male, 14 years old) who also has Asperger's Syndrome. Because his parents have made an intensive and conscious effort to focus on developing socialization awareness and skills, including empathy, he too is growing and developing into a fine citizen.

Others seem to assume that their "normal" children need no such instruction, which I consider a serious dereliction of parental duty.
