If you missed this program the last time it aired, try to catch it this time.
TEACHINGS OF JON shows what it’s like for some families living with a member with Down Syndrome... and it's not what you think.
Jon’s parents, a psychiatrist and psychotherapist, tell us how he caused a complete change of values for them. They admit that he taught them about good mental health. The siblings share what it was like growing up with a brother who has severe mental retardation; how they had to learn how to communicate with him and the positive affect he has had on all of their lives.
You know the old saying, "You'll laugh. You'll cry. It will become a part of you." Well, it's absolutely true for this program. Enjoy.
