Gosh, I love Jenny and LOVE her books. Can't wait to hear more about what she has to say. She's funny and real and gorgeous and a mommy - what's not to love?!

I think that it is great that she is trying to bring awareness to autism. I have really enjoyed her other books and will definately be reading this one as soon as i finish the big stack of books i already have to read! :)

most people don't get passionate about a topic until it personally affects their life.

Cuteness isnt only skin deep for the people who dont think jim is cute. I have always thought Jenny was awesome, ever since the early days of playboy when she laughed about how they airbrushed out her cellulite and acne.

I think the main thing is that she is bringing attention to it.

yeah, talking about it and reality; not the same thing. holly's son is SEVRELY affected. to say he is anything else is just denial. how high functioning can a person be if they can't tell someone when they are hurt, cold, sick, hungry, etc. by law if a parent in california asks for their child to be mainstreamed the state must provide that under "least restrictive environment" laws. mainstreaming with severely affected atusitic children is largly for their parents. the next step with this type of parent is homeschooling (not bad mouthing hs kids by any means). this way they don't have to hear what the school district has to say about their childs issues. hope cost nothing and can get people thorugh dark times, but when you don't face reality all that you create is a second issue; denial.

Holly Robinson said that she's seen dramatic improvement in her son by using some of the same technique that Jenny does. Her son is 10 yrs old. Your probably right though for most cases but keep hope alive! Here is a link to where she talks about the same thing about struggling at 4 yrs old but he is now being mainstreamed. http://www.celebrity-babies.com/2007/04/holly_robinson_.html

my oldest daughter has autism. the early days, before kindergarten are NOTHING like what the rest of his life will be, this is the easy part for her and her family. the time when the delays of a year or 2 or 3 don't mean much because all kids are a little "quirky" and what's a little delay? when typically developing kids hit school age their developmental milestones take off at the speed of sound, and social delays are blinding red flags to the other kids that something isn't quite right. then most parents insist on mainstreaming their children (after holding them back a year) pretending that this will "fix" their shild. there is no cure for autism. it is a permanent life long impairment and most of these kids will require life long care (no independent living). for someone like jenny m that's easy to pay for, for the rest of us not so much. we've tried every therapy available but the sad truth is that not only is there no cure, but many kids regress after age 4 and not all kids make measurable gains. she should stop with the "he's cured" crap. it isn't going to help anyone and may actually keep some parents from facing the truth and making responsible preperations about their childs future (special needs trust).

Now that I think about it I'm always accused of being someone else on this site. I guess if I agree with someone or they agree with me I must be them, I don't know. I forget the last person they said I must be.

Your Welcome macsugar, it's like Oprah said there just hasn't previously been enough attention given to autism in the past so anyone who can spread the word I think it's great! pinkprincess, there also isn't hardly enough attention given to cerebral palsy either! Even much less attention than just about anything I can think of. I wish there was more awareness! There needs to be more support and awareness for families dealing with cerebral palsy!

I've never been a big fan of her, but she is changing her image a lot :). Nice to see two divorced Hollywood adults acting like adults for once!

Sasha 520 and hotstuff HI AND THANKS...THANKS...THANKS!!! for everything you said up above. My son, Gabriel, has autism and, as cliche as it sounds, he is an inspiration to me. It's true, I wouldn't know as much about autism if Gabe wasn't diagnosed in May of 2006, but he was. And I think it has made our family focus more on what's important. I might not be completely in sync with Jenny (we follow the GFCF diet and use OT, SLP, ABA and PLAY therapies), but I think she is AMAZING for for the attention she has drawn to autism. Check out our little guys singing Linkin Park, The Old Lady song and more, here... that is if they let me link... http://youtube.com/user/joey125
