I have been watching this boy from the time he was 4 mos old and he is now almost 2 1/2 yrs old. I have always thought he was a little "different" from the other children, but whenever I've brought it up to other Mom's or friends, they just tell me he's a boy and boys develop slower and differently. It's just after doing some of my own research and observing him the last couple months, I'm almost positive something's not "right". I really want him to get the help he needs if it's needed, but I am really struggling with how to bring the situation up to his parents. They seem to be oblivious and in denial about his delays and differences. I don't want to make them defensive or even pull him out of my care. Has anyone been in this situation before and what did you do? Please help! Thank you!
