My DH's sister is 8, we are much older. My DS is a year behind her in age. My DS has Autism & ADHD, and it seems that every time we go to a family function she feels the need to put my DS down. We were at a cookout this past weekend, my DS gets a little anxious and animated in large crowds, she blurted out "Has he had his medicine?" (which makes me think my FIL & her mom have been talking about him) And during the day she kept telling the other kids that he can't "talk right" and other mean things. My DS is unaware (or seems to be) of her insults, but I"m getting tired of them! Should I bring this up to my FIL, have DH handle it or just ignore it as typical, rude 8 year old behavior?
