Here is the thing I am a young mother to two wonderful children. I myself have been diagnosed with a behavior disorder for over half my life. One of my children has recently been diagnosed with the same disorder. I have been searching around for new ways to manage behavior that aren't the ways my mother managed me. But then I see things where people lable their children by there disorders and it really strikes a nerve with me. For so long I believed there was something wrong with me schools put me in different classes then other students teacher singled me out, I was told I was bad when I didn't know what i was doing wrong. For so long I believed I would never amount to much and that I was only labeled by my symptoms but I am so much more then that. Now that I have come to realise that this lable is not all that I am and all that I can be I feel free. Though it bothers me that people are still labeling their children as disorders. i guess what I am trying to get at is what good can come of a place like this where we speak of our children as symptoms and disorders when there is more to them when they are whole people?
