    Good read but ASD disclaimer would make it better

    I would’ve much preferred that the book had included a note or disclaimer stating the author did not at all have in mind those people suffering serious adverse childhood experiences who also were struggling with autism spectrum disorder. As one who has for decades suffered this perfect-storm combination of life’s misfortune, knowing this would have notably helped as I read it. Perhaps she could also have strongly advocated for high school curriculum that teaches the science of the basics of young children’s developing brains and therefore healthy/unhealthy methods of parental/guardian child rearing. In 2017, when I asked a teachers federation official over the phone whether there is any such curriculum taught in any of B.C.’s school districts, he immediately replied there is not. When I asked the reason for its absence and whether it may be due to the subject matter being too controversial, he replied with a simple “Yes”. This strongly suggests there are philosophical thus political obstacles to teaching students such crucial life skills as nourishingly parenting one’s children. Put plainly, people generally do not want some stranger—and especially a government-arm entity, which includes school teachers—directly or indirectly telling them how to raise their children. (Albeit, a knowledgeable person offered me her observation on perhaps why there are no mandatory childrearing courses in high school: People with a dysfunctional family background do not particularly desire scholastically analyzing its intricacies; i.e. they simply don’t want to go there—even if it’s not being openly discussed.)
