Just wanted to share this because it means so much to me and I think it is a great idea. Not just for DMD boys but for all our kids and us parents as well. My son’s teacher did not want Kenny wasting all of his energy on writing journal entries so she thought it would be a good idea to buy him a small voice recorder. At first he didn't want use it because he insisted on writing and swore, he was not tired. She convinced him that he wrote enough during class time, so he didn't need to do more at home. He finally agreed and started doing his voice journaling. He didn’t want to record in front of anyone including me so he would go outside, sit in the sun, and do his recordings. Those recordings are the most precious gifts a parent could ask for. He reported the current weather conditions, talked about his favorite hockey team, talked about what he did the day before. He just talked about whatever was on his mind. I hadn't listened to all of them as there are about two years worth of recordings. He didn’t want us to listen to them in front of him because it embarrassed him so we would sneak a listen whenever we could. It is such a blessing to have such a great gift and I am so grateful to that teacher whose idea made that gift possible. I will forever cherish the precious recordings that contain his precious voice, humor and a wise, brave soul. I would suggest a voice recorder for the whole family because one day those recording will mean the world to someone.
