Michael Douglas Reveals Son Has Special Needs

| Filed under: Inspiration

michaeldouglase.jpg

Between his courage while battling throat cancer and his dedication to his family, Michael Douglas is really an inspiration these days!

Douglas moved his family from Bermuda to New York City for his son Dylan's special needs.

Here's what he's had to say about the move:

"One of our kids has some special needs and it was recommended he go to a special school in the New York area."

No specific word on Dylan's needs, but we respect the thought and care that Douglas is devoting to his family.

Here's more from Douglas on family life:

"What I worry about is trying to maintain the family unit with all these outside influences on them. The internet, for example; there aren't borders anymore. You look at the sites on the internet."

And more from Douglas:

"How do you, with all your abilities, maintain a family unit for as long as you can with just your values? You want your kids to have those values. They're watching us, which is important. My kids can see what we do, and they're pretty comfortable in that."

And Douglas on "absolute happiness":

"For me, it is to wake up my kids in the morning - these little pieces of innocence - to wake them and find they're so happy to see me! It is unequivocal love, no question about it. And oh God, is that rare!"

All very nice stuff, Michael.

We wish you and your family all the best in New York!

    Special Needs…..like Alcohol & Drugs? It runs in the family!



  2. 2

    Yeah, Michael. Keep telling yourself that. You screwed up your first family so this one will be perfect?? It's all about YOU isn't it



  3. 3

    Maybe if that Jones' bitch hadn't been smoking (there were pictures that proved she was) the kid would have been healthy. Not to mention more years of smelling both their nasty ass second hand smoke all the time.

    Love Michael! Wonder what he means though when he talks about the Internet and the "sites" that are looked at and influencing the family. Veeery interesting.

    Is his kid's special need due to porn addiction or what? Strange. Cryptic.



  5. 5

    I guess life can be hard even if you have boatloads of money. I wish him well.



  6. 6

    I know it really isn't anyone's business, but I hope they aren't hiding their special needs children. People like Michael Douglas aren't required to come forward, but it would mean a lot to special needs families if celebrities like him would see it as an opportunity to educate.



  7. 7

    Someone has finally grown up and matured. I hope he beats this cancer and is around for a long while to watch his kids grow up.



  8. 8

    Positive thoughts to the family! Stay strong!



  9. 9

    To bad he was to busy being a man ho with his first family.



  10. 10

    Seems this child changed his life towards a more positive direction. Kind of sad often with this type of metamorphosis people find themselves running short on time.
    Hope he gets the good break and gets some extra time…



  11. 11

    I pray it is not Autism…so sad.



  12. 12

    what about your first family!! Oh right, you fucked up. Your wife Caherine married you hoping u would die off early, and get your money. It obviously didn't happen.



  13. 13

    I think his kid is gay and in order to avoid the embarrassing ordeal Marie Osmond, Cher & Annette Benning are going through, the kids is in a GAY-to-STRAIGHT therapy program costing MILLIONS That should work….RIGHT PEREZ?



  14. 14

    Okay let me get this straight Perscuz you can be all lovely dovey to a man who expresses his concerns about his family and their exposure to media. Yet when it comes to strong young women who assert their independence you feel threatened. You are a piece of shit and I am sure M.D. would rather fight off ten tumors in his throat than have to deal with the cancer that is you all up in his kids bizz. You are so transparent you fucktard of the century!

    let me guess autism the new IT WORD for kids oh ur kid is autistic what a bunch of bullshit how many kids are being diagnosed now with autism last time it was oh ur kidd has add or adhd give it up leave the kids the eff alone

    Yes Dylan is autistic. I saw it on another site (an autism site) a few months ago. I am sure CZJ and MD attempted to hide it in Bermuda. Very tragic.
    A "special school" being necessary must connote something really sad like classic autism with MR (may be moderate mental retardation).

    Their ages plus former drug use combined with electromagnetic toxins everywhere today could be a cause. CZJ probably smoked too. She did with the girl. This is so much worse than Michael's cancer which hopefully looks like he will be cured soon. :)

    MY GOD! His first son is in PRISON for God's sake. And he had the nerve to say on some talk show that his ex-wife was 'limited' as a mother. Yeah right. Blame Mom for everything. And I can't believe his wife Catherine smokes also! Talk about being 'limited'. I don't know what is going to happen to his older son. Where he will end up in life. It would be nice if everybody here get's turned around and ends up healthy and happy despite the mistakes they have made in life.



  18. 18

    special needs happens with older fathers also, which is also overlooked. he was too damn old to start having kids again. i wonder has he and his wife/daughter thought about that. wish him the best in getting well.

    I've seen people 'flip out' as they get older. And every person I have ever known who remarried and started a 'second' family were miserable with few exceptions. Especially women who do this and end up with preschoolers in their 40's or even 50's! Those fertility clinics are haulin in the dough with all these middle aged people thinking that having a baby in your mid 40's or even 50's is the fountain of youth! You can't fool mother nature. You are supposed to have children WHEN YOU'RE YOUNG! Not when you are approaching middle age. Women are lucky. Nature stops them from reproducing by a certain age but some men can father children up until their 90's! I am in my 50's and my children are grown thank God.

    Re: Voice_de_Reason – Yeah. Revelations often come towards the end or perceived end. At least they happen though. I'm going through a horrible stuation that has no solution and dealing w/ppl who will never have those revelations. Ugh. I get sick thinking about it. So anyway… I'm glad he's trying to do what he feels is best for his family even if it seems late. The point is that he's attempting to do what he feels is right.

    why can't these fucks just say "yeah my ex wife shat out a retard"?
