Violence is NOT inherent to Autism

I’m not sure who said it first, which news agency, which reporter….I don’t know, but whoever reported it was being negligently irresponsible in their reporting. It came out late Friday evening, after the worst elementary school shooting in the nation’s history, that the shooter, Adam Lanza, may have had Aspergers…some said that he had autism. … Continue reading »

Dad v. Happy Birthday Dad!

No, it’s not my birthday.  It’s my dad’s big day and I’ll do my best not to lay on the old jokes too thick. But he rode a pterodactyl to school… Actually, he’s not even that old.  He’s pretty darn cool. Grumpy, at times, but still very inspirational. For instance, he labored for 70 hours … Continue reading »

Dad v. Parenting in the Elements

Being the parent of a little league football player in October and November can be rough.  Oh, sure, it’s rough for the kids to be out there in the cold playing their hearts out…but we’re sitting on our butts in the cold and rain and wind.  Seriously, there are times it’s no fun at all, … Continue reading »

Dad v. Waiting with the Bruiser

For two years I’ve been trying to get a tackle out of my boy in practice-let alone in a game.  He spends most plays that he’s able to be out on the field for backpedaling.  No matter how much I talk to him. Last season he pretty much only played on offense.  In fact, the … Continue reading »

Dad v. “Drink Less, Work More.”

We live in a world where celebrities and those with incredibly massive bank accounts love to tell the rest of the world what everybody else is doing wrong. And for some reason, we all jump at the chance to hear what they have to say…and when they say things that we don’t agree with, we … Continue reading »

Dad v. Getting back on the horse

Howdy. When I started writing “Dad v.” it was without any idea of getting tons of page hits or making any money or anything like that.  I was simply out to tell Noah’s story, and our family story. I needed to tell the world about a little boy with high functioning autism and a dad … Continue reading »

Dad v. The Posture Postulem

Well, I don’t laugh all day long like an idiot, if that’s what you mean.  –Wyatt Earp, Tombstone   It has come to my attention….namely by the Cheerleader and Goob and the boy that I always look mad.
