Some parents do not want their kids to be labeled. It is better to be labeled as having FASD, which may help the child to get services, than it is to be labeled as a troublemaker, dropout, sex offender, criminal, or to be dead. Find services for your FASD-affected child, and advocate for him or her. This will not only help them but it will make your life better also.
