    I have an Asperegers Syndrome 11 year old and it is a challenge for me to be able to relate to him. We kinda mix like oil & water. All we seem to have in common is a high aptitude in math and chess. Also, he recently decided to teach himself French. I just hope he can write it better than me.

    Anyways, last night, in total surprise, he reached out to me and asked if I would play his game cube with him. I have absolutely no idea what I am doing and I think he took great delight in teaching me how to use controls. I think he took even more delight in thoroughly trouncing me. Of course I blew myself up many times as well.

    Just thought I'd share. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    That's great Jim! It's such a better story to hear than I played this game which caused me to burn down my old high school. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    I love how video games these days are actually used for exercise, learning and bringing people closer together. So much nicer than the days when they only got blamed for negative things.

    Now all you have to do is figure out what button does what. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Aw, that's really special, Jim. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] I know that sounds sarcastic... lol But it isn't: I know it can be hard enough to find things to relate to their kids with parents, and you've got an extra curve thrown in for ya. I hope that you and your son will continue to make progress. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
