|Thanks everyone for your comments and support. I now don't feel like I am over reacting.
Karen, what you said is something I really need to repeat to myself and also to the parents I work with. I am a school psychologist and frequently work with parents whose kids are atypical learners or have learning disabilities/difference. When it comes to Nathan and other members of my family, all objectivity flies out the window and I am just an emotional case!!! I need advice from other people when it comes to myself or my own family.
Thanks all for providing the advice and support.
