    I don't have the patience of being the parent of a 5 star athlete with an IQ of 180; let alone a half wit

    Every time we have the kid talk, I flash to seeing this couple who had to be late 60s. Had a full grown adult son, who was functioning like a toddler. No. Just no.

    I would try like hell to be the best parent, but yeah it's a tough job and a tough job for those parents. I've done some work with special needs camps with Floor Hockey for the kids. They work hard and it can be some work teaching and getting things together, but they are great kids and they seem to really enjoy sports and being together team wise. Probably less trouble and more enthusiastic then my usual kids. :snicker:

    But being around the camps and working with them, you see the parents love and patience with their children. Really hits you right in the heart. God bless the parents. They rock! :badger:

    Nope! I don't even have the patience to be a parent to a normal kid.

    No kids for me!

    I honestly wasn't sure how I'd be pre mommyhood, but a parenting program kicked in once my first child was born that made me love him, tolerate him and willing to do anything to help him. Both of my children are mentally and physically normal and healthy though.

    I don't have the patience to be a parent to a "normal" kid. So no way. :happyno:

    We had a dog with "special needs" and I was at my wits end every other day trying to deal with her. It takes a certain type of person to be a good parent for any kid. It's not a life decision one should make lightly. You never know what challenges might await you.
