There are so many people in the world who have a number of different struggles going on in their life and, while some of these people let these struggles define them and control their life, there are others who take it and use it to make them a better person. Dyslexia is something that a lot of people all over the world struggle with and something which can be overcome if you are willing to fight.
Television star Kelly Ripa has spoken in the past about her 14-year-old son Joaquin and how he has struggled with dyslexia from a very young age and she has once again been talking about his struggles on her show Live with Kelly and Ryan. The television star got emotional while sharing her story, admitting that she is very proud of her son and how he has been coping with it all.
Ripa shared, "I've told this story before so forgive me if you're bored of it, but in first grade, he was in the same school as my other two kids. And in first grade they do the First Grade Book Fair, where the kids, the first graders, have all written their own book. And the parents come in and you go to the book fair and your child stands up and shows you the book that they wrote. And he was showing us everybody else's book."
She added, "He did not want us to see his book. I'm sorry, I don't know why I'm [crying]. Maybe, I don't know, maybe it's hormones. But anyway, I remember thinking 'We're going to have to find another school.' It became clear to us that we were going to have to find another school. And we did, and we've been so so fortunate, and he's been such a trooper and so fortunate to really trust us as parents and really trust his own instincts. Anyway, I'm really proud. I'm proud of him."
