Mann is lucky to have two good friends who don't blink an eye to have him over to play or sleep over. Although his care is mostly his responsibility, they watch out for him and give him help if needed. He does have a few friends, including close family friends, that would never offer to have him over. One even said "we would love to have him but..." He gets excluded from certain things (extended play activities/out of town events). I have been able to shelter this from him but know that I can't forever. So if your child didn't have D would you take the responsibility of a friend of your child with D? Even with D, would you be willing to take on the added responsibility of someones D child for extended periods of time, especially if their D regime was not the same as your child?
