Why do parents with mentally disabled children lie to themselves and say god has "blessed" them? Every time I've talked to somebody with a mentally disabled kid they call their child a miracle.
Because people are naturally inclined to try to make their burdens/hindrances out to be strengths. It makes them feel better. We all know their kid's a fuckin' 'tard, but think about how they feel. They waited on a nice, regular kid for nine months and got a mistake and they're too socially conditioned to be bleeding hearts that they won't just do the right thing and euthanize it.
tl;dr - Let 'em have this, they're just working through the denial.
I agree OP but Downs Syndrome is one of the few exceptions. They're a dream for parents who would rather have their kids be their "precious angel babies" forever. So great for moms but bad for dads.
What about the "butterfly kid" whose skin falls off with even the lightest touch? Crying in pain every time his parents bathe him or change his clothes? The kid who talks about how much he wishes he could just go to highschool and be a normal kid? I bet that kid would off himself if he could.
Their parents love them and would probably climb mount everest if that's what it took to cure them. I mean what do you expect, for them to take them out back and put a bullet in the back of their heads?
This isn't about whether they love the kid, it's about whether the all-powerful God Almighty knowingly and purposefully "blessed" the parents with such a "miracle" for a "greater purpose"
>parents has downs child who literally throws shit everywhere and attacks random people in the street when they go out
>"He's such a beautiful child! God blessed me with him!"
>parent has child who has slight problems being social and charismatic
>"You worthless piece of shit why do you treat me this way I can't ever get grandkids because of you I hope you kill youself!"
Maybe he did? I mean how would you even know. Do you read any sacred texts or even believe in God at all. I think it's kind of a loaded question to ask why someone lies to themselves. Maybe it's not a lie, or maybe they genuinely and wholeheartedly believe their kids are a blessing, even if something is wrong with them.
Because for Jesusfags it's a sin to hate God, even when he gives them a bad hand. They feel that it is somehow their fault and they should be thankful that they have children at all. They pretend to be thankful but deep down the resentment is strong
I read the Bible all the time. And yes struggle and hardship is for a greater purpose. But, don't you think, just maybe, from our tiny human perspective, that he could have just given the kid a bum leg or something instead? If the degree of pain is supposed to result in the parents bringing about great change in this world, then they've failed. Will it bring them closer to god? Of course - but holy fucking SHIT don't you think that's overkill?
At least watch the documentary and hear the suffering child's own words.
Well statistically speaking the child is going to go through life with a better standard of living than the average person even with an IQ of 120+ in China, India and various other poorer countries.
So in that respect, it is a miracle of societal wealth and empathy. Pic somewhat related, babby avoided that fate.
>When autistic people try to converse with you
Stop it, you freak. I don't even want to look at you, you literal mistake of nature.
It's different in another cultures.
I've worked as a medical assistant to a pediatric doctor in the USA, and there was a foreign (I'm guessing she was Armenian) woman who gave birth to a retarded baby, and when she brought her child in for checkups she kept weeping and apologizing to me that she was forcing us to provide medical care for her "broken baby."
My guess is that she was a mail order bride and she was worried that her husband would send her back because she gave birth to a retarded baby.
Some people actually enjoy the prospect of having to take care of a manchild. They stay just like a little kid in their eyes and they have unique personalities unless they're completely braindead.
Parents of severe autists who are combative and don't have a shred of empathy are so worn out that they will just tell you straight up their life is hell and they need help to manage their kid and they may even put him in a home.
