If I get dirty by eating …If I have some difficulty dressing …Be patient! Remember the hours that I spent to make youlearn all sorts of things when you were small.
If I repeat the samething dozens of times,do not interrupt me!listen to me!When you were small, you keptasking me to read you the samestory, every evening, until youfell asleep. And I made it!
If I do not wash myself more often under the shower,If I do not wash myself more often under the shower,do not reprimand and do not tell me that it is a shame.do not reprimand and do not tell me that it is a shame.Remember how many excuses I had to invent to makeRemember how many excuses I had to invent to makeyou take a bath you were small.you take a bath you were small.
By seeing my ignorancetowards the newtechnologies, do not laughat me but give me the timeto understand

If I sometimes loose memory or am not able tofollow a conversation, leave me the necessary timeto recollect and if I do not reach there, do notbecome a nervous and arrogant person because themost important for me,… is to be with you and tobe able to speak to you.
If I refuse to eat, do not force myself !I know very well when I am hungry and when I am nothungry ...
When my poor legs will not allow me to move anymore as before …
