Unstrange Minds

This book is like a journal that record the author's life with his autistic daughter and his whole family. I think we should also take care of the parents with autistic children.
These parents really need the support from general public. They might  be exhausted because of taking care of their children. They might fell guilty that they must have done something bad that could cause autism. They might hide their children because others think negatively about autism.
I saw a play named "falling" in a small theater before I came here. It was about one-day life of a family with autistic children. In this play, the mother felt relief when she dreamed that her 18-year-old autistic son died. But when she woke up she felt guilty and started to worry about who would take care of her son after she died. She was just tired and really need someone's help. 
Fortunately, there are more and more special schools, institutes and organizations pay attention to autistic children and their family. Parents can get information and help from psychiatrists, therapists, and even websites. If everyone do something positive to the families with autistic children, their life will be better.
