I mean, it's not disputing how difficult it must be to work with adults with learning difficulties but the two can't be compared really. For starters we're talking about out OWN disabled child, and I'm presuming that means the child lives with you and you have to do so many things for him. I'm also presuming that at the end of the day your sister can go home and switch off where you're on your "job" 24-7.

My own family don't really understand the depth of it all, my brother only really sees the children for an hour or so at a time, and they're usually happy to see him, jumping up and down on him and playing, etc, so he gets the good parts and doesn't see everything else that is involved!
