As parents of a son with autism, Holly and Rodney have come to expect the unexpected...most of the time. Now that R.J. is 18, however, his attitude toward autism has shifted, and it's throwing Holly off guard.

"He, all of a sudden, started talking about hating being called autistic," she tells Rodney. "It used to be 'I have this thing, but I'm going to overcome it.' Now, it's just like, 'I don't got it no more.'"
