    Ah fuente .... you may have crossed a line with me here making such a sweeping generalization .... or did I misunderstand you?

    ETA - there are many many people visiting this site and after 10 years+ here I think I can safely say that's a totally inaccurate statement.

    Perhaps the OP would be more comfortable in the private Caregivers forum.

    Since Fuentejps is making such a global statement about our users, I wonder why he is here...since he is part of that group.

    He's still very young and needs you eeven if he doesn't admit it. Getting him independent to taste the real world is a good idea but have open ears when he needs. I'm at 1.5 year post, living at a nursing home. It's frustrating but good to prime him for getting his own living situation--that's a real kick in the ass about real life. Fuente is right, push him hard, he'll thank you later.

    It seems that you are doing all the planning for your son. He has to want it. Let him research and make phone calls and decide his living situation. Becoming physically indep. make take more time. Going to school may motivate him more. Tell him your more than happy to help but he has to initiate and plann. thats what indep. is all about.

    Fuente--I love you bro, but you can be so extreme! You are a great inspiration but sometimes you pop people's balloon on the rise. We all have different abilities and circumstances. It's good to push people but how they deal with their injury is their journey alone.

    I don't know where in New England you are, but Boston Univiersity has had more than one quad go through school there with attendants, and they have a good disability office to help coordinate this sort of thing. It's an urban campus, but that makes it more exciting, with lots to do and see, and the campus is remarkably accessible, even if that sometimes means going in the back door. If his grades were good enough this might be ideal....back with his own age group and something to think about other than his disability.
