Parent-to-Parent Advice: The Truth or What They Want to Hear?

When a parent comes to you for advice, how do you answer? Do you tell her the truth or what she wants to hear? On last night's episode of Parenthood, Julia worries about Sydney's behavioral issues and obsession with a rubber band ball so she seeks Kristina's advice. Though Max, who has Asperger's, also had a rubber band ball, Kristina withholds the information and tells her sister-in-law that everything will be fine with her daughter. In the end it turns out that Sydney isn't autistic, but gifted. When fellow parents come to you with concerns about their kids, what position do you take?
