Ruthie will be a wonderful caregiver after school when she gets older. She can spell mom and dad with bathing, medications, diapers, etc. in case he becomes infirm and needs help and watched over. Socializing with people who are his peers and having opportunities for fun and stimulating activities with them to foster a sense of independence and dignity once he can’t fully take care of himself isn’t everybody’s cup of tea. It’s a choice. Emphasis on choice. Kudos to Cylene’s parents for making sure she visits her grandparent(s) and is obviously engaged in what goes on in assisted living facilities for those who need professional assistance. Maybe it will inspire her to become one of those angels who work their tails off to make sure grandpa and gramma are cared for properly.
