Here at Epiphany, we LOVE reading! We also love to keep up to date on the latest stories and inspirations that we can share with our families. Currently the Head of School, Erin Morris, is reading “Love That Boy,” by Ron Fournier. Ron’s son was diagnosed with Asperger’s at age 12, and this story chronicles the father-son road trip that helped shaped their understanding of each other.
More from the author…
A uniquely personal story that delves into the causes and costs of outsized parental expectations. What we want for our children—popularity, normalcy, achievement, genius—and what they truly need—grit, empathy, character—are explored by National Journal’s Ron Fournier, who weaves his extraordinary journey to acceptance around the latest research on childhood development and stories of other loving-but-struggling parents.
