Inga Wanted More For Her Son

Roberto Martinez

Inga Cotton is best known for her collection of large hats and her blogging in support of charter schools. This story is sort of the orgin of that. (The blogging, not the big hats.) 

Inga's deeply personal story deals with her son's autism diagnosis, and shows how being a parent means having to adjust expectations, to push your kids, and somtimes, to fight.

This story was recorded at Brick at Blue Star on October 2 as part of Worth Repeating's "Suckerpunch" show.
