"Crazy" things....have you done them?

If you have been watching the great show on NBC called Parenthood, you might know what I am talking about. And, if you are not watching Parenthood...you should be!

It is one of the best shows on TV right now and happens to feature Aspergers.

On last week's show Kristina Braverman was advocating for her son Max, who has Aspergers, in a way that she called "crazy"!

Basically her son was not invited to a birthday party of a girl in his class and Kristina stepped out of her comfort zone and confroted the girls mom not once but twice with a little chat with the girl herself in between.

What broke the ice was Kristina asking this mom if she has ever done anything "crazy" to advocate for her child, the mom said yes a play date for the kids and the adults resulted and the rest is television history.

The question is...would you do this? Or, what things have you done in the act of advocating for your kids that you thought you would never do?

Make sure to catch the show tonight to see what happens next!
