Never not been able to calm my child or now my grandchild down. Approached all the time about how well behaved they are. I never use punishment like hitting, time-outs, taking things away, ect. or use threats, yell, swear, count, ect. that you hear in public. I use proactive parenting skills.

yes. my youngest son has autism. his behavior now is that of a normally developing child, because i drastically changed my approach in teaching him. before he was diagnosed, i was at my whit's end taking him in public. he had a serious problem going from one room to the next, or from outside to inside, you get the idea. just walking through the door anywhere was enough to provoke a major melt down, and i was constantly getting rude comments and stares. after he was diagnosed, the developmental specialist we work with gave me business cards that read "my child is not bad. i am not a bad parent. my child has autism, and we are both learning to live with it. thank you for your concern." i handed one to a woman at the mall who told me to "shut that kid up or give him to someone who can!" she cried lol
