I totally agree. By all means try to involve him in social groups where he is likely to make friends and maybe find a girl friend, but that is as far as she should go.

I PM'd her/him this am and apologised, and explained t'was not my intention to offend him/her, and offered an apology for causing any upset, but not for my post...

I can do no more than that....

I guess Leigh does have a point. Rather over sensitive though, if you ask me.

WTF???

I was giving my opinion/thoughts/whatever. I was not attacking you FFS.

I'm sorry you took it the wrong way, but I'm not sorry for my post, because I didn't "attack you".

Great start to morning eh...! lips_sealed

On re-read, I suspect that BobbyKat took your comment as addressing her because you quoted her. Had your reply been alone, it may not have been interpreted as such. Just a thought.

We won't know how the mother feels unless one is in exactly the same position as her. But I stand by my comment of getting him a shave;)

That's not what I meant at all... I am multiply disabled myself, and would feel more sociable talking with people that are more like myself, I did not mean to totally segregate him from everyone else or keep him from other social or other activities, and I certainly would not wrap him in cotton wool and s/mother him.

I read this yesterday and it raises all sorts of privacy issues - will she go online next when he does manage to have sex for the first time? Sex and disablement is a thorny subject and at least she recognises it as normal but to go to the papers was a step too far imo.

She should stay well out! If he wants a girlfriend, I'm sure he can fine one himself:) (Perhaps he could start by shaving:D)

Mother Appeals For Girlfriend For Adopted Son
Has she done the right thing or should she stay well out of it?
