Yesterday my son got very angry at something - I'm not sure what it was because I wasn't in the room. In response he ran and slammed his fist into the window. Thank goodness it didn't break. I don't really know how to handle these. Anger outbursts are part of his condition. He doesn't really know how to handle it well and of course having an older sister who walks all over him doesn't help the situation either. He also can not verbalize fast enough in a situation like that to say anything. My mother tells me that he needs to be "trained" not to do that. Ok...so he's not a dog...but is there some truth to that?
His response to a situation that he doesn't like which usually involves when another person interferes with him - is to throw a tantrum. He sometimes bites, kickes, grinds his teeth in anger, etc.
Any tips? Last time I put him in his room for a time out he ended up cleaning up! As great as that was for me i'm not so sure its good for him to revert to his "lining up" and "everything needs to be in order" issues either.
