Need assistance with my son
My 21 year old son has Asperger's. He doesn't leave the house. He is brilliant with computers. Does anyone out there know of a company that could use his talent and yet allow him to work from home? Any help or leads would be most appreciated. He's a good person. I'm trying all I can to help him live an independent life...thank you.

Re: Need assistance with my son
I spoke to a psychiatrist recently who said that the true instance of Aspberger's/autism in society is only three people in every thousand. But people want to think their nerdy or socially awkward kids are "special" somehow, so there is a push for doctors to give this bullshit diagnosis. That is part of the reason "Aspberger's" will be removed from the upcoming DSM manual and will no longer be considered a true condition.

And I am sick of parents saying their kids are "brilliant" or "genius." No, dumbfuck, they are not. Schools are so dumbed down now and TRUE competition is politically incorrect, so everyone gets a gold star on their forehead and everyone is a little genius. You know what "Genius" means literally? "One who generates" or creates something totally new. Like Michaelangelo. Like DaVinci. Not like your dorky son. What has he created? And don't tell me something like a computer program or app that doesn't do anything special. Unless he has created a world-shaking new innovation on the level of a Renaissance master he is not a "Genius."

Yeah, its easy to pretend to be a misunderstood genius with a tragically flawed mental condition that absolves him of all responsibility, so he can mope around his room and eat hot pockets that mommy makes. Here's a clue: He's malingering, and you are enabling him. What he really needs is an ass-kicking, to the curb...followed by honest work in the real world shoveling shit or making fries or whatever...just as long as he is producting something of use to society. Take away all the electronic crap, take away the donuts and the free roof over his head, beat the shit out of him, and tell him not to come back until he has accomplished something on his own. End of fucking story.

Asperger's isn't an official syndrome anymore. (As of two weeks ago) My guess would be that you're supposed to inform him of that and let him know that he has to step up and get out into the world now.

It won't be easy, but it's too hard to make a legal living from home these days, especially for the young.

I wish you both the best. Remind him to be polite now, since he doesn't have an excuse anymore.

*I'm not making the part about it not being a syndrome anymore up. Worth looking into.

 Quoting: Nine's



Not trying to be, but I see so many kids who are coddled and enabled by their parents, who think they are special little geniuses for no very good reason. A whole generation of losers who can't even look another person in the eye and are addicted to electronic gadjets, computers, iPhones, and video games. These kids need tough love because its a tough old world out there and their parents aren't doing them any favors by enabling their weakness and patheticness.

Perhaps the OP's kid is the one-in-a-million who really is a "brilliant tormented genius" but based on what I have seen chances are he's just another spoiled kid who needs to learn the value of real work.

What are you talking about? OP didn't say her child is a genius. It appears the child is good with computers. And that is a marketable skill. The rest of your writing doesn't make any sense, the parent is just trying to help out the child, nothing wrong with that.

I know what you're saying. It's easy to become skeptical of everyone when so many are so messed up.

13 to 15 hertz brainwave entrainment. It can help to some extent.

Don't have kids. The world has gotten into enough shit because of you fuckers who think the only purpose in life is to "be productive to society".

Fuck you cunt. People are not slaves. We are free. We can work to support ourselves and do what we want; we work to live not live to work, as they say.

Unless you want a Chinese system where kids go to school 6 days a week 12+ hours per day? Because that's REALLY healthy for our mental state of being.

And exorcisms are real.

In other news today, a lad by the name of Alexander Graham Bell has created a device with which he claims, we can communicate over greater distances without a need for pidgeons. He calls it, the telephone.

In case you didn't get it:

You're a dumbass.

Re: Need assistance with my son
I spoke to a psychiatrist recently who said that the true instance of Aspberger's/autism in society is only three people in every thousand. But people want to think their nerdy or socially awkward kids are "special" somehow, so there is a push for doctors to give this bullshit diagnosis. That is part of the reason "Aspberger's" will be removed from the upcoming DSM manual and will no longer be considered a true condition.

And I am sick of parents saying their kids are "brilliant" or "genius." No, dumbfuck, they are not. Schools are so dumbed down now and TRUE competition is politically incorrect, so everyone gets a gold star on their forehead and everyone is a little genius. You know what "Genius" means literally? "One who generates" or creates something totally new. Like Michaelangelo. Like DaVinci. Not like your dorky son. What has he created? And don't tell me something like a computer program or app that doesn't do anything special. Unless he has created a world-shaking new innovation on the level of a Renaissance master he is not a "Genius."

Yeah, its easy to pretend to be a misunderstood genius with a tragically flawed mental condition that absolves him of all responsibility, so he can mope around his room and eat hot pockets that mommy makes. Here's a clue: He's malingering, and you are enabling him. What he really needs is an ass-kicking, to the curb...followed by honest work in the real world shoveling shit or making fries or whatever...just as long as he is producting something of use to society. Take away all the electronic crap, take away the donuts and the free roof over his head, beat the shit out of him, and tell him not to come back until he has accomplished something on his own. End of fucking story.

Re: Need assistance with my son
My son started showing signs of autism/asperger's when he was around 3/4. I REFUSED to have a child with that disease/ailment.
I CONSTANTLY made him engage and then took him for treatment to a children's hospital after the pediatrician kept telling me he was "fine" even though he couldn't eat solid food.
We went thru the treatment and he learned how to eat and started showing signs of astounding mathematical talent.

Fast-forward, today he has asperger's and he is a straight A honor student with an interest in games and music. I PUSH him constantly and even when he had difficulty making friends, I pushed his boundaries and talked to him constantly about how to deal with people.

Today he is polite, friendly and has lots of friends. Loves school, loves LIFE and is a very funny comedian. He is 11 and I am hoping for BIG things for him in the future.

If this kid is 21 and the parent is hiding behind this diagnosis, that is a shame. There is something missing that the parent did not do, I am sorry to say.

I understand the love part but love means you don't let a kid who has problems just SIT and not engage in life. It is unfortunate that nothing was done when he was younger.
