This was awesome.
22 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a sister of a brother who had a severe case of Tourette's and a mother of a son who has mild Tourette's, I think the show was awesome. I think if anyone would watch this, they would be very understanding as to what people with Tourette's go through. I work at a school and have heard teacher's comments on tics, not understanding that they just can not "stop it and settle down". I think this would be a very good learning tool for all school staff to watch. I think it would also work as a good Character Counts teaching tool for students, so that all students could understand that these kids are just as normal as you and I, except for the tics, and they need friends just like everyone else.
