Again, I think it all comes back to who you surround yourself with Once you start branching out and finding your own tribe, you'll start feeling like your own child is not so different after all.
The world can be as positive or malicious as you want it. so stay positive and have some faith in humanity. There are lots more wonderful people who will love your kid than hate them.
I think these are great words of wisdom.
I am quirky, my friends are all kinda quirky. Anyone that was not happy with who I was, simply was not someone I wanted to be friends with......and my kids are quirky. They have found peers and classmates that enjoy them for them : quirks and all. It is all about finding people that accept you & your kids for the whole sum of their 'person'.
