review Far from the Tree

Read Far from the Tree 107 From New York Times bestselling author Andrew Solomon comes a stunning poignant and affecting young adult edition of his award winning masterpiece Far From the Tree which explores the impact of extreme differences between parents and childrenThe old adage says that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree meaning that children usually resemble their parents But what happens when A fascinating book about who are different from their parents and often different from the main stream There are chapters on children growing up deaf autistic as small people with severe disabilities as musical prodigees as children who are the result of their mother s rapeetc Each chapter includes interviews with either children who live with the condition or their parents and families or both The isolation these children and and parents feel can be profound Finding a community of peers can be life changing for some of these children and their families The original writer Andrew Solomon is a thinker and researcher Any preconceptions he has as he turns a new kind of difference from what we consider a typical child fall away as he talks with these families The book is by turns reassuring heartbreaking and challenging I can t recommend it enough Even though I am no longer teaching and seeing several of these children daily I serve people with mental disabilities drug issues deafness and physical disability some of which are the result of homelessness or some the cause of it All of them are food insecure They each have a story This book pushes me to uestion all of my assumptionsI read the last two chapters today Oh my goodness this is a book all prospective parents expecting parents and parents raising children should read The author s own story about becoming a parent is utterly vulnerable and terrifying and beautiful What we expect as we anticipate the birth of a child and what we receive are not necessarily the same things I am undone by the openness and honesty of the parents and children Solomon interviewed but just as much by the vulnerability and tenderness that he showed as he recounted his own journey towards fatherhood It makes me feel far vulnerable and tender than I ve felt in a while when I think about my own children and grandchildren Here s to love and understanding and openness to all the ways our lives and children can unfold Thank you Andrew SolomonPassages from the book Far From the Tree by Andrew Solomonp 60 and 61 the complications of deaf children being able to be medically treated to become hearing An entire culturedeaf culture will eventually disappearand Solomon views this culture as a rich valuable diverse cultureBut feels that even so deaf children deserve to hear even though it will be a cultural loss He doesn t mean cochlear implantsbut newer and possible procedures which enable hearing Historic preservation is noble but it should not prevent invention Disabled children like non disabled children thrive on attention engagement stimulation and hope 147 Autism When a new intern for his son Chris started Jae would say Here s two hundred dollars you can win You re going to come into the next room where we ve hidden something And you ll try and guess where it is and what it is The person would come into a darkened room and all the other interns would be screaming and clicking and making nonsensical remarks The new intern would get and frustrated and would finally say I don t understand what you re doing What do you want And Jae would say Come on find it I ll give you two hundred dollars When the person finally walked out Jae would explain That s what life is like for autistic childrenI was surprised was one of the essays in the book I had assumed that hanging out with the game in Guatemala City would show me the toughest part of Krishna Instead it showed me the most vulnerable Criminality is an identity and like any other form of organized brutality football war financial arbitrage it can beget great intimacy There is a social imperative to repress criminal behavior but that should not preclude recognition of the identity I deplore violence but I recognize the military intimacy it allows men who have no other occasion to bond Indeed I recognize that the conuests by which the very map of the world is drawn derive from the loyalty and aggression of young menAdam Lanza the Sandy Hook shooter who killed his mother and 24 children two adults and himself had severe developmental delays although he loved his early years of school He was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome but refused to accept the diagnosis As he got older and saw a new psychiatrist the doctor worried for the mother She was essentially a prisoner in her own house Adam s parents accepted the diagnosis and didn t look for anything else that might be wrong with himIn his last chapter the author talks about having a child Media commentators largely failed to acknowledge that veterans of a condition their children may inherit are uniuely ualified to understand the risks and rewards of life with that condition In 2003 the author interviewed a young woman Laura Rothenberg about her cystic fibrosis In her book Breathing for a Living Laura praised many things inherent in her CF identity but would have welcomed a cure She wanted to live long and feel good Consumed with grief just after her death her father said to me When Laura was conceived they didn t have an amniocentisis test for CF But they developed one If we d known Laura would not have been born I still have the thought My God she could have been denied life What a tragedy that would have been

Far from the Tree

Read Far from the Tree 107 The apples fall somewhere else sometimes a couple of orchards away sometimes on the other side of the worldIn this young adult edition Andrew Solomon profiles how families accommodate children who have a variety of differences families of people who are deaf who are dwarfs who have Down syndrome who have autism who have schizophrenia who have multiple severe disabilities who are Please stop spreading inaccurate information about autism As an autistic person I m so tired of how much autism is misunderstood and the extremely inaccurate information that keeps being spread causes severe issues ignorance and mistreatment from others One big inaccuracy is that we lack empathy We may struggle to understand neurotypical people sometimes but neurotypical people struggle to understand us if not so than we struggle to understand them Autistic people understand other autistics better than they understand neurotypicals because we understand eachothers processing better Just like neurotypicals with neurotypicals That doesn t make us unempathetic because we understand people similar to us than we understand people not similar to us And at the same time it s neurotypical people who have caused the most harm and trauma to the autistic community Personally I m a deep deep empath A highly sensitive person who feels too much of and for others My dad on the other hand is an unempathetic asshole He is not autistic Soall in all please stop spreading the inaccurate information that we lack empathy When you do it shows how much empathy YOU lack because YOU RE the ones misunderstanding us Didn t bother to read any other sections I may relate to because it gets really old being told by people not in your community what it s like to be in your community
