Let Him Set His Own Limits
Gretta Farley (gmfar1980@aol.com)
Sounds like your son's doing great! While I understand your concern as a parrent of a child with a disability and your feeling of needing to protect him my advise would be to let him set the physical limits on what his body is/is not able to do himself. He is 16 years old and all children able bodied or not must learn to do this. I think it's great that he is so successful in and enjoys many activities. Many people with mild CP including myself have very normal lives and some have even learned to drive. Best of luck, Gretta
