You are so in error. You cannot discipline these children the same. I know, I used to work with them. They are NOT like a normal child. They are different in ways you cannot fathom.

I do not believe there is any human suffering like the suffering of a parent who loses a child.

I know it from personal experience. I lost a beautiful, young teenage daughter almost 10 years ago, and the pain never goes away.

When tragedy strikes, we want to do something. It is a natural human instinct that when we suffer, we conclude it is because something is broken and to want...
