I would have to agree with you. Parents are the true teachers. We can
give the kids all the knowledge in the world, but if mom and dad don't
reinforce that importance then "Johnny" will take it for granted. We have
to stop giving everyone a title and a diagnosis and start teaching not just
labeling them because of what we think they are capible of. They could be
capable of a lot more or even less.

Your right and i am sorry that you are being blamed, that is just wrong!!
