Social Misunderstanding leads to School Suspension

My 9 year old son was recently suspended from school for two days over two one off racial comments that were said with no violence, malice or aggression. Most of his friends are Indigeneous and he has been accepted as one of them, being taught their language and how they speak to one another. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in the school setting. He used a word which to the average non-indigeneous person without knowledge would seem offensive, though in their language just means "silly".

HELPFUL MEDICATION FOR ASPERGERS

My 12 year old daughter has had many years of distress and torment due to her aspergers symptoms. She has endured severe bullying throughout her schooling years until she had a major breakdown 16 months ago which required emergency hospital treatment as she wanted to end her life. At the hospital she was placed on Zaprexia. This medication is very strong and it causes other problems for the child. She experienced severe weight gain & it lowers dopamine levels in the rear & frontal lobes of the brain. This caused her to feel foggy in her thinking & very tired.
