# UL0682 Hardcover, 240 pages; 2016
You love your kids no matter what, but you expect them to be something...
When political journalist Ron Fournier's son Tyler was diagnosed with Asperger's at age twelve, he realized his parental expectations were in dire need of adjustment. Love That Boy - an inspiring and enlightening personal account of a father's journey to understand his child and love him for exactly who he is - follows the father-and-son history junkies on a series of trips (to presidential homes and libraries, as well as visits and interviews with George W. Bush and Bill Clinton). This touching, engaging, and very meaningful book encourages parents to examine their own expectations of normalcy and success for their children, and to find the joy in redefining what's truly important.
