|Never Argue Book Cover|
This is an excerpt from my next book: Never Argue: 2014 Edition. I wrote Never Argue with an Autistic Child and other Special Tales, which detailed the last 6 months in 2012 of raising special needs kids. I should have started one for 2013. I am thinking about doing a giveaway for the book soon.

I wrote this morning about Brad not wanting to get up and go to school.

- I got tired of him being at home
- I got tired of doing his work for him. His school knew Brad could not read or write, but wanted work turned in weekly. Most of the work was my handwriting, either hand over hand, or myself doing the work. His artwork was his and his alone. Scanning in a week’s worth of work on Friday did not help the case for homeschool either.
- I got tired of live classes. Since it was homeschool, I wanted to work on my own schedule. Getting up extra early was not one of them. During the first year, I did get up at 8 or 9 am to go through the work, with him done by 1 pm. With the second year, I was too tired from dealing with two, active kids to get up by 8, unless it’s a doctors appointment or church. I wanted to start his work after 11 and work through the afternoon and part of the night. We also did work after midnight, if he did not want to go to sleep.
