Thank you Anthony. I know Michael's wife and have followed him and his struggles with raising his children. They have thousands of friends on Face Book and their foundation, and from what I've seen everyone loves them, and there has never been an accusation of any kind made against him.

Warrior Mom is just talking through her hat. The Schofields are good people doing their best to raise their children who have very different, but very pressing needs. Just where do people get these asinine ideas that Jani and Bodhi are being abused, which they are not. The Schofields have provided a forum for the mentally disenfranchised; families of people coping with mental illness; people who have survived RTC and other institutional abuse; woefully inadequate services and have brought many people together.

Warrior Mom made this same post in another discussion about the book. It just goes to show you that if you spread bull further, you just have more bull. Just where does Warrior Mom get the preposterous idea that anybody would WANT their child to carry the sz diagnosis? Sadly, Jani's behavior fits the tab for sz and there is nothing even remotely resembling Asperger's in Jani's make up.

Jani shaken in infancy?! Warrior Mom is REALLY talking through her hat. I doubt she ever read those blogs and I also doubt she watched the programs featuring the Schofields and other families coping with mental illness. They are not living in luxury. Warrior Mom might want to get her facts straight instead of slandering a good family! For Pete's Sake!

I, too am looking forward to reading the book.

Unsure why YOUR opinion matters? Obviously you do not know them. Obviously you are obsessed with them & open to airing their personal information- YET you conceal your own identity, that is highly suspect. VERY SUSPICIOUS. Typically, in the real world - not YOUR delusional world, if one is going to go to such lengths to REPEAT OBSESSIVELY THEIR INANE "opinions" they at least do it with a deep level of integrity by providing their real identity...otherwise, it is easy for the remaining 99.99999% of the population to render your "opinions" as delusional rantings, at the least. SEEK HELP, perhaps by healing yourself, controlling your thoughts & putting your "opinions" in perspective you can then begin to lead a PRODUCTIVE life and CONTRIBUTE to the world. Character assassination doesn't do anyone any good- least of all you. It truly makes you look vicious, obsessed and quite delusional. Perhaps it's time to address your OWN issues and allow others to do the same. If you don't like the channel YOUR life is on (STUCK) you own your remote control - CHANGE THE CHANNEL. View your own life under a microscope & start there, I'm sure you will find lots of things to heal, clean, fix & rant & rave about all within the confines of your own life. Your auto responder needs to be shut off too...best to you. CHOOSE A DIFFERENT PATH.

This message was directed to and for "JUNEBUG/JAN". Not intended for you Anthony, with apologies if that wasn't clear.

Accusing them with lies and disagreeing with them are two different things

I'm with Wayne, Anthony & Susan Polk. You all are Godsends with refreshing voices of reason.

There are two threads like this currently running on Amazon. The same trollery from the same posters is taking place. I know the Schofields, so I find it damn difficult to let these outlandish charges against them go unchallenged. Add to it is that those who are so quick to condemn them don't read the blog in full; take a small fraction of what they HAVE read and present it in such a way as to skewer the meaning. If that isn't bad enough, they appear to be obsessed with a family they don't even know and this behavior looks like stalking to me.

These two George Harrison songs are very a propos in re this thread and the other one like it: Devil's Radio and Think For Yourself. Perhaps these folks who are hounding and harassing the Schofields might want to wait and read the book before they pronounce judgment. If they don't want to spend money, they can always read it for free at the library or a bookstore.

Hmmm, again I ask simply and honestly -- exactly what are your credentials & relationship to Jani? Do you really BELIEVE that DCFS, school teachers, school boards, psychiatric facilities, including UCLA!!!, for God's sake, oops, overlooked child Abuse?? Do you have any idea how deep Oprah vetted out guests? What about the network they were on? They all had access to the same information you & I read. Were there charges, accusations, allegations, investigations that CONCLUDED in child abuse charges against either parent? If NOT, please advise us ALL why you should have anyone's attention & why your opinion MATTERS? - All of these professionals, all of this attention on them, NOT you, are entitled to opinions. What YOU are doing is character assassination & it is vicious, contemptuous and BASELESS.- I find it interesting that you find it so necessary to do this. Your tirades remind me of a Mother Teresa quote "I was once asked. Why I don't participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I'll be there". I think it would be remarkable if you could turn all of your "Anti" into a more positive movement and stand FOR mental health programs for the children, adolescents, parents, care takers of the mentally ill. Today being a day for Thanksgiving & gratitude - I am so thankful for the attention, focus, drive & determination, and All of the financial, emotional & moral support Michael & Susan have consistently patterned for all of us. WHO have you helped today JUNEBUG? Who have you wired money to? Who have you rallied behind to get a community to assist another parent in need? What have you CONTRIBUTED? Peace.
