As the parent of a child with Down's syndrome, author Martin Ramirez is intimately familiar with the challenges his ten-year-old son Mario faces on a daily basis. But even more, Ramirez knows just how well his son can teach life's lessons to the rest of us. Living it Up with Downs!: How My Son Became My Mentor focuses on Mario's remarkable zest for life and shows the true love and devotion between a father and son. Through his daily interaction with his son, Ramirez noticed that humans have four core needs: love, attention, control, and excitement, or L.A.C.E. These needs can be met in either a healthy or unhealthy way. By sharing examples of how Mario approaches each of these wants, Ramirez helps you understand the right way to meet these four basic needs. Whether it is watching his son develop control while playing with another child or studying Mario's nonjudgmental reactions of love toward others, Ramirez reveals the simple beauty of Mario's personality. ·What would it mean to you to learn from a spiritual being sent here to teach (a sermon) trough actions, not words? ·What would you it mean to you to find your purpose and relax, as your goals arrive too? ·What would it mean to you to find your purpose in the service of people? The endearing relationship between Mario and his father will inspire you to find your own inner bliss through fulfillment of your four core needs, no matter what your obstacles in life may be.
