I MADE DS try on the jeans I got him today. He did not want to. I told him I needed him to because these were cut different. HUGE mistake. stupid stupid stupid. He then started SCREAMING that they were ugly and he would never wear them!! The whole time screaming I was killing him and hurting him and how I needed to stop 'hitting' him. ( I wasn't ) the jeans were stupid and I was stupid and I did not deserve to live and this has been the worst day ever...
They have seen him have melt downs before but tonight was just over the top... and we already discussed in my last thread how thin the walls are here...

Ah, yes, aspie meltdowns. been there. What worked with my son was if I gave him options. "You can try them on now or you can try them on after lunch, which one do you choose. " As I'm sure you understand, you have to pick your battles. I always have to ask myself, is it worth the fight? Or can I wait until he decides to do it when he wants to. ( With me reminding him over and over)
