I need to know, should we feed obsessive behavior, meaning, should we go above and beyond to get objects for autistic kids that they are obsessed with? Adam has went throw vacuums, and now owns 4 very nice ones himself, then Bratz dolls, now owns a better collection then most girls. Now it is towers, radio towers, cell towers, we cant 'buy' those but dad was able to find images of them on the net, now Adam will have tantrums to have pictures of towers printed a dozen times a day. I am able to tell him no and walk away, he gets over it, his dad cant seem to say no. I wonder if this is bad for Adam, not the saying no part, but the getting him as many as possible of the thing he is currently obsessed with just to 'shut him up'. It has been a pattern in his little life, he wants it, it throws a fit, his mother gave it to him. I mean seriously, how many Autistic kids own thier own vacuums, 4 of them that have never been used and are nice vacuums!
