Thanks for the ideas J.B. Thing is he’s not my child and my parents interfered so much with how I raised my children that I try to “mind my own business”. She is a smart girl and she knows it’s odd he doesn’t talk. When I talk about it she seems perfectly fine with it for now and that may be the best approach. I think if she already spoke to his doctor about it …… ? ? I just pray it all works out. I tend to over worry about a lot of things. But you are correct in saying if his parents don’t fight for him, no one will.
