love it

Thank you for such a great documentary. My niece has tourettes and she had tough times while she was a teenager. she is now 21years old. She and the children in this documentary are the bravest people I know. Education is the key. All teachers should be educated when they have a child in their class that has tourettes. My niece was lucky her teachers had taken some classes in dealing with children who have tourettes. What was real nice about this documentary was that it had children who were interested in all different things that children there age like to do. That even with having tourettes you are still just a child, a person who have the same dreams and aspirations that of other children their same age have.

Watching this documentary makes you want to just hug those children and never let them go.

I wish them the best of luck always.
