In less than a month my daughter will be coming to stay with us while her husband is out at sea (he's in the Navy). She will be bringing my two wonderful grandsons (Jack is 3.5 and Ian is 5 months). Jack has autism and has made great strides at his school but will probably be without services while he is here. They will be staying for three months while my daughter finds a suitable home for them in Virginia. My question is how do I discipline Jack? I was at their home cooking this past weekend and Jack came in the kitchen and picked up an egg and threw it -- I know he didn't understand what he did was wrong but how do I get through to him that some things are not acceptable. He went running giggling after he did this and I went and got him and brought him in the kitchen and used hand over hand to have him help us clean up and then I tried telling that that was wrong but he just giggled and ran away from me. That evening when my daughter was doing his home ABA he was laughing inappropriately alternating with crying and had a really difficult time focusing. Did I do something wrong? I want so bad to stay connected with Jack -- it seems like everyone else outside of his parents have taken a hands off approach to his autism. But I want to learn -- my daughter says this is just how he is sometimes. I want their visit to be nice but It would really help if I had a way of correcting him. You mom's are so great here -- where do you get your information on discipline? Is there a good book I could read? A website? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you so much.

Hello, this is bothering me again right now. I REALLY really want to know if scoliosis is my fault. Did I do something wrong to get it? Did I worsen or cause this somehow? I've got a 20° S curve scoliosis that was diagnosed when I was 19 years old. In the past I had underweight of only 55 kg as a male from 16 to 19 years due to psychosis and anxiety in school. Now I'm 20 years old and my weight...
