    How very true, as a father of 2 small children with special needs this is very moving. You had me crying tears of sadness, followed by tears of joy at the end when I see how proud you are of your brother & how much happiness he brings to you.

    thanks for sharing this item. i used it as a resource,along with others, when discussing use of language, and name-callling, with my kids.It grew from a recent holiday in Ireland during which they saw Punky on the tv. I wish all parents would talk to their children about acceptable ways to behave in ,and about being inclusive. The playground is full of racial and other slurs and insults. ps. I also liked your well reasoned post about Ricky Gervais.
