Peete writes new playbook to deal with son’s autism

Nothing on the football field or in the rarefield atmosphere of Hollywood prepared former NFL quarterback Rodney Peete and his actress/wife Holly Robinson Peete for parenting a child with autism. Peete writes about his difficulty coming to grips with his son’s diagnosis in a new book Not My Boy! In a recent interview with National Public Radio’s Michel Martin, Peete says:  “We have our own goals for our children, especially sons. I wasn’t able to connect with my son, who was my firstborn son, who had my name. I was in denial about what he had, what the doctor was telling us. It was a dark time for us.”  You can read more of the interview with Michel Martin  here.
