After an extremely stressful week, I come home to find my daughter has sent Brock to his room, for peeing on the basement floor. Ughhh he is almost 13 and knows better. I'm beside myself trying to figure out what is going on with him lately. He's defiant, non communicative (even for him), distant and only wants to sit on the computer all day long, and has a melt down when he cant. His room is a disaster and no matter how much I clean, he makes a mess right behind me. Puberty? Sometimes I forget that he is that age, because theres so much I have to do for him, that its easy to still think of him as a child. I still wash his hair, help him get dressed, remind him to use silverware and not eat with his hands, wipe, flush, wash the list seems endless. I really wonder how much he gets and how much of this is Autism, Thankfully school starts back up Monday. Anyone have similar experiences???? Any words of advice???

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
