My son is 14 years old. He has been in special classes his whole life. He has been restrained since pre school and put in time out rooms since then. Now he is home schooled. He can be a sweet little boy but when he gets frustrated he can't control his emotions. He has fits our outbursts where he yells and talks back. He slams his door hard and hits the walls sometimes. He even tries to tell us he will not listen and will do what he wants to. He is getting bigger. I worry what to do to help him. He is so sweet when he is happy and feeling good. My roommate thinks he is just bad boy who never feels bad for the things he does wrong. Like sneaking junk food out of the pantry or getting up at night an sneaking to play video games or for talking back when told to do his chores or when he is punished. He gets really upset and angry when he gets caught or punished sometimes. I get so stressed out cause he is my baby. I know he can't control his emotions easily but my friends and family do not understand that and they think i am babying him. I need some advice. Is mine the only child who acts this way? He is on the spectrum. He is high functioning and sometimes people thing he is "normal" and they expect him to never act out.. He is autistic and he is not able to calm down sometimes. I know this cause i am his mom. I lived through it all with him from the time he was a baby. I need some back up.
