Parenting a Kid on the Fringe can feel very isolating.  Families of typical children simply don't understand what daily life can be like for those of us with higher needs family members.  Our families are atypical, our experiences are uncommon, which, by definition, means there's a smaller likelihood of finding another Fringy Family nearby.  This is why the Fringy Bit exists.  To bring us together.  To support, share wisdom, and hear others' stories with whom we can truly relate.  Check out the links to the left to connect and become part of the Fringy Bit community.

The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers & cities; but to know someone who thinks & feels with us, & who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.
— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
