The improtance of a mentor

It's important to not just rely on your own judgement.  This may be a surprise for some people but there are people out there who have more knowledge and experience than you.  Someone who knows you, you feel comfortable with, and can advise you.

I remember a few years ago a friend of mine was telling me how he saw 2 guys who were going towards a degree in Physics.  One really smart, and one not as smart.  The one who wasn't as smart took all the advice my friend had (as he also went for a physics degree), and that guy got farther than the guy who gave him the advice in a shorter amount of time.

This is something that also applies to parents in raising a child in general, and especially in raising an aspergers child.

Save yourself trouble get a mentor!
