    Helena Bonham Carter, that brown eyed goddess as the single mum of 7 kids, 4 of which are boys all with some degree of autism. A very funny program last night on BBC2. Now if that had been 4 or 5 then miss HBC would have had her chabs out! I thorougly enjoyed it and now fancy her rotten. If only the single mums I know were half as tasty as her!
  2. Speaking as a father of 1 child with autism, how the hell that women copes with 4 is beyond me. Must be in line for a medal

    Fully agree with you on that one, my oldest lad has his strange moments but he never means harm to anyone. He is so kind and helpful and doesnt understand the bad guys outside!
    4 is madness no wonder they made a documentry on the girl. No satelite here so I missed the chance oto see the second showing of the original program. I wonder if she is a brown eyed godess?

    It's based on atrue stort but why she kept having kids I do not know. Even 7 normal kids would be more than a handful!

    I suppose eventually she figured she would have a complete section. It seems that the girls are all "normal" and they were born interspersed so it looks like defective genes on his part. Some women though cant help being "loved"! Friends of mine have 2 sets of twins and lord only knows how they have stayed married.
  6. Jacqui Jackson is indeed a Goddess, Monkey has border line Asperger Syndrome and can be an 'E' numbered fuelled child of Satan... he's a joy to be around :? Hmmm Monkey times 4...... 8O Nope! I'd do the topdeck shuffle off of the local suicide tower! AND they have progressively far more complicated needs than he does! A medal? Nah, better state funding and help and basic recognition of her kids’ rights would do IMHO....

  7. The true story was aired on BBC Four straight after.
    Both progs were very good, too many kids all the same. I mean i know state pensions are looking ropey but FFS who would want seven!
  8. A friend of my wife has three sons all with varying levels of autism and to make matters worse she recently found out that her husband has aspergers and it's getting worse! How she copes is beyond me.
  9. My oldest son,9 yo, has just been officially diagnosed as having an ASD. It has taken four years for his condition to be officially recognised after attending three different schools ,each of whom said he had differing "needs". Now upon informing his headmaster we are told that they already knew of his condition but were unable to tell us because it would infringe his rights! WTF has gone wrong with the world. All I want is whats right for the boy why can't the system be the same?
  10. Pike, welcome to the world of special needs - It has taken nearly 6 years and countless sleepless nights before my son was recognised with Aspergers - one specialist even told us it was in our heads! You have to continually fight for everything, just so that he can grow up with a little understanding of who he is and how to deal with it. His school in Germany at the moment is very good, and gives him all the support he needs, but his one before in Aldersh*t used to sit him in a corner and play by himself.

    Schools here are willing to take the extra money that the LEA grudgingly provide for SEN kids but are more likely to budget swallow it for the headmasters favourite subject!
    Anyway all this aside I really fancied HBC but reality is beyond promising the earth to shag her i think I'd be off like a shot before sunrise!
