Shut up about your perfect kid!

Posted by Martin Finucane April 4, 2007 01:48 PM


Gina Gallagher of Marlborough is a mom who wants the other moms to shut up about their perfect kids.

In fact, that's the name of her new book "Shut Up About ... Your Perfect Kid!.

Gallagher, who wrote the book with her sister Patricia Konjoian, has a daughter with Asperger's syndrome, a mild form of autism, the Fresno Bee reports.

The two are trying to kickstart a "movement of imperfection." They want to speak for parents of children with developmental disorders and mental conditions who think their kids are wonderful, too.
