  • Helpful video for Parents (non-tourette specific)

    I am not a parent currently,
    But I wish this man spoke to me and my parents when I was a youngster, suffering TS issues and having trouble at school. I think it's some useful food for thought.

    The bit about "the dancer" is of particular worth.

    I love the story of Nativity play and the three little wise men:
    the three boys came in -- four-year-olds with tea towels on their heads -- and they put these boxes down,
    and the first boy said, "I bring you gold." And the second boy said, "I bring you myrhh."
    And the third boy said, "Frank sent this."

    And the lesson:
    Kids will take a chance. If they don't know, they'll have a go.
    They're not frightened of being wrong.
    ... If you're not prepared to be wrong, you'll never come up with anything original.

    Thanks for posting this.
