Being A Dad
Toms River, NJ — Being a parent is always a tough job. Brent Carter, 33, discusses his role as a father, what that means, and what it is like raising a kid with Autism. He speaks about how he was in special needs classes for attention troubles, but never expected the attention disorder to trickle down to his children as well. Having a child with Autism, especially being only 24 at the time, is the moment that changed his life. He didn’t know what to expect and he didn’t know how to go about raising him. But as his child got older, he realized that he is the most loving, gentle child he has ever known. Suddenly, the thought of raising him didn’t seem so daunting.
