I wanted to add one more ingredient and that is “follow through”. If you have said that hitting is not allowed and if he continues or doe...

Even if your neighbor and your estate agent were friends and the agent helped his friend get that house it will not resolve any of your issues because you were the one who chose to take the agents advice and not pursue the other house. Lots of people use agents that are their friends because they tr...

Congrats to you both! People are at their best when they sleep well and babies keep you from getting enough sleep, Take naps, laugh at the insanity, enjoy this amazing new human, and try to find common ground with your partner. I'll try but we're complete opposites. They say opposites attract, righ...

I appreciate your presence. Truly wish more NT's would come. I'm more referring to "in general". I know NT's and ND's do fall in love with or befriend each other and some have long, happy relationships. Not sure about the percentage of success vs. failure nor how that compares to the alrea...

I'm going to resurrect this thread, because the subject came up in a discussion group Tuesday evening where Mona and I were (virtually) present. We're going to have some in-depth discussions on the topic of autistic-friendly social skills beginning next month. I was going to start a new thread, but...

You may be different from most people but not wrong or broken or anything, just you are you - and th...
