Mom, am I Special Needs?

“Alex actually came up to me, we were sitting at the dinner table, he asked me, he goes “Mom, am I Special Needs?” And it broke my heart ‘cos I didn’t know what to tell him and so I kinda just bypassed the question and my husband came and was just like “Everybody’s different, just like I wear glasses, you wear glasses, mom doesn’t wear glasses, or I’m a boy and your sister’s a girl, hair color and stuff but me I was just like frozen. What do you say? And I didn’t know how to react. He’s getting to the age now where he’s starting to realize he’s different. And I don’t know how to address it so I reach out to you guys to kind of help and the guidance of how do you tell them and make them understand that they already feel different”
