I feel like I'm going to loose it and need big mama hugs, and bigger advice
My six year old DD is on the spectrum and besides flapping/being in her own world/being obsessed with horses we haven't had any problems with her behavior wise. We used to say we could take her anywhere - fine restuarants, museums..she's super charming and loves being out and about on adventures (reason #13 I love homeschooling her..) lately though, she's just unbearable.
She screams/throws tantrums when she's not getting her way. It's like "can we go __ now" and if I say "nope! In a few minutes" or "not today" she starts screaming and throwing things and acting very brat-like. Another example is today (we are at beach for the week) I said "lets go to lighthouse, than the bay because the weather is a wee bit crummy and it's supposed to pass.." and she just started screaming NO NO NO I DON'T WANT TO and ran onto the deck, locked herself out there, and than almost slammed her 3 year old brothers hand in the door. It's like a constant fight ever single day, she's so unpleasant to be around! Which sounds awful but it's true. It's not like she can't do these things for some social reason, she doesn't WANT to and therefore we should be doing only what she wants.
She's just being rotten lately, and in general I'd love to be able to rant + get some advice on disipline in someone with Aspergers as I'm new to ALL of this. Thanks you so very much
(and I would write more but DH has bacon ready to be served!)
