My son was newly diagnosed with autism and Im struggling with disclipine. I don\'t know what he understands and doesnt. He seems so smart sometimes and others clueless. I don\'t want to let him run the house but I dont know what to do! Loud noises freak him out so I talk very gentle when I scold him, but he just repeats everything im saying and then says ok. I don\'t know if hes just appeasing me or snowing me over. H\'es not the withdrawn type, very much the opposite. Very chatty and opinionated. He\'s not violent, but definitely does what he wants. He is 3 1/2 but is in the range of barely a 2 yr old. So I dont know whats just 2 yr old behavior or the autism. Frustrated!

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
