So, I can't take it any more. My son is 8 and has asperger's and ocd. He is normally functioning pretty fine 90 percent of the time. Well, we recently remodeled our basement as a new family room and he can not handle himself down there. Every single time he is down there, there is some huge meltdown or issue. He treats it as it is his place to do something he is not supposed to do, lay out all of his toys everywhere, uses it for a battleground to torment his little brother,every single time, it all blows up. I can't figure out how to handle this. It is hard to say he can't be down there. I can't go there everytime they want to. We have had so many talks about it being a part of our house and not some free for all. Still, I would like us to be able to use our house without it coming to crying, fighting, screaming and kicking. Please help! Thanks!

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
